RALLY-O: AN INTRODUCTION TO RALLY STYLE OBEDIENCE, 2ND EDITION
Charles 'Bud' Kramer
Enlarged 2nd Edition! Charles "Bud" Kramer is the originator of Rally Style Obedience, and his book tells you all you need to get started in this fun, new approach to dog obedience. Rally is designed to be a style of obedience that emphasizes fun and excitement for the dog, handler and spectator, with a more natural flow to the performance. The handler and dog complete the course by reading a series of signs along the course and performing the exercise listed on each sign, without additional commands from the judge. Scoring is also designed to allow less precision than traditional obedience. There are two levels: Level One is entirely on-lead, so beginners can participate early in their training. Level Two is for the more advanced dogs and is off-lead. Book explains everything you need to know to set up a trial, how to judge, a full description of the classes and exercises, and details about the signs needed. There are also different course designs shown for both levels. 2003 Spiral , 123 pages
