What is Rally Obedience?

Prerequisites: Knowledge of the following skills: sit, down, heeling basics, a reliable recall, and sit/down stay. We assume your dog knows the basics, can pay attention and follow your commands even with other dogs nearby. In this classes everyone is expected to be sincerely interested in competing in AKC or APDT Rally classes and dedicated to training each week at home.

Shirley Spall

Shirley has been showing Great Danes in Obedience since she purchased her first Dane in 1977. This Dane, Bogart earned both a CD and UD (advanced AKC Obedience titles). From then on Shirley was hooked on dog training.

Over the years she has exhibited and trained her dogs in the Rally, Obedience, Agility, Tracking and the Breed Ring. She earned numerous advanced titles in all of these venues for her Danes, Goldens and Labradors.

Shirley started showing in Rally when it was first a special event. When AKC opened the licensing for judges, she became an AKC Rally judge. Over the past few years she has attended many AKC judging seminars.

She likes to make sure her students are well prepared to go into the show ring knowing all the skills needed to compete successfully in Rally Obedience. She also wants her students to understand the Rally O rules and have the confidence and ability to overcome challenges they may encounter in the ring.
