RallyFIT is a non-competitive program combining the fun and relaxed format of Rally-O with the function and benefits of canine fitness.
You and your dog will work as a team to perform various maneuvers and canine fitness exercises at stations throughout a course.
Because this program is a pilot program, we will be tweaking it along the way as we work through it and will be asking for feedback to help us make it the BEST it can be!
RallyFIT will be offered in different levels due to the increased difficulty performing Rally-O skills as well as the additional challenge, improved strength and adapting skill of the dog using various pieces of equipment.
Unlike our FIT-Foundations programs, this program will run one team through the course at a time, so teams waiting will have an opportunity to practice calm / settle while the others are running through.
You are welcome to use a portable fabric crate to help your dog settle while waiting OR you can use a mat.
FIT-Foundations Level 2 (or equivalent - basic obedience / manners 2 and have a decent stay, can walk on loose leash and be able to focus)
Dogs must be at least 8 months old, be fully vaccinated, healthy and injury-free
