What is Rally Novice? Check out this run of Annie’s. Novice is done on the leash.

Run One at Salt City March 2012

Run number two at Salt City March 2012-The Title Run

1st Rally Advanced Match-Geneva NY

Obviously we have some practicing to do. The ring next to us is running a Utility Dog Match. As you can see, Annie is a bit distracted. That has to do with the fact that the ring over there is ‘playing fetch’ a game that Annie is extremely competitive at. She wants that dumb bell SO BAD. At least she tried to pay attention to me. :0)

Something else that Annie LOVES to do is AGILITY.

Annie’s Standard run at Salt City Cluster in March 2012.

Weave poles are the most difficult to learn. That is why you get three tries at them. As of this date, this was our best run by far. I am very proud of it. We have since earned a Title in Novice FAST. Check out the links on the Agility and Rally pages.
