NEW UKC RALLY SIGNS - New Challenges Big Fun

The UKC (United Kennel Club) made significant changes in rally signs in July 2020; since then we have had limited to no opportunities to trial in Ontario.

The new signs provide challenge and the opportunity to refine skills and teach many new skills.

Regardless of if you trial in UKC the skills and challenge will be a great change to your Rally training.

This workshop would be well suited for a handler to bring more than one dog for different levels.

In this workshop we will:
• review the new signs
• provide demonstration
• break them down
• teach new skills
• practice, practice and practice
