Rally O

I know this isn't as interesting as other threads but,

Sam gratuated "Top" of his class in Rally O, last night. I'm so proud of my boy, he is so smart. Rally O is so much fun. I would encourage everyone to try it. Right Amanda?

"Hav" a Great Day,

Congratulations Debbie! I love Rally!

Tinky has her first leg. I did all of my reading online and joined a Havanese Rally Yahoo e-mail group to figure things out. On our very first time out (the Hav National Specialty 2005), Tinky & I went out and passed. It was amusing because she was enticed to do things her own way a few times, but did well enough overall to pass. We don't have any local training for Rally, so we have to wing it.

You and Amanda are making it awfully tempting to go back and compete at one of our next shows.

Thank you, Shannon. It still needs some tweaking, but I couldn't get it work before and my daughter was messing around and made it on a moment's notice.

To give you my explanation of the difference between Obedience and Rally-O, Obedience is much more rigid and strict. Rally-O is quite a bit more relaxed, but still needs to the dog to follow. In Rally-O (at least in the beginning), you can still coax your dog by using his/her name and clapping your hands and acting like a dog-owner-idiot to get them to follow. LOL!

Simply put, Rally-O is a very loose form of Obedience - in the opinion of this novice.

Thanks everyone, I didn't know there was a Hav Rally group, I will have to look into it.

Shannon, Agility is a course of jumps and tunnels and other obstacles that your dog have to go through. Rally O is a course of signs that the handler and dog have to go through and do what the sign says. Like "Right turn", "about turn left", or "halt, 1 step halt, 2 steps halt, 3 steps halt" . I find the hardest part is to remember the signs and not get lost on the course.

Sam does much better than I do.LOL

Kimberly, how do you get you avatar to switch pictures like that. Very neat!
Sorry for the repeat question, we were posting at the same time.
