Rally Course of the Week – January 2, 2012

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 60’x70′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This is another bic Course with a lot of sits (13!). Since you only have 3 minutes to complete all this work, you need to be working towards a smooth performance without having to take the time (and point penalty) for extra cues. It also helps to move at a briskContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – January 2, 2012”

Rally Course of the Week – December 19, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced Team (CARO) Space Required: 60’x70′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This course has each team waiting near the centre of the course while the other team works around them which may or may not be something your dog is comfortable with. It’s a good idea to think about practicing your team runs while waiting with your dog in variousContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – December 19, 2011”

Rally Course of the Week – December 12, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 60’x70′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This course is ‘light’ on advanced exercise but it is essentially built around the food bowl exercise. furthermore, the food bowl exercise is right of the bat so your dog will KNOW exactly where they are. This course makes a good case for practicing other exercises and general heeling around mega distractions because theyContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – December 12, 2011”

On the Road Again…our CKC Adventure

After Bear’s performance last month in Regina, I decided to enter him in a couple of CKC Rally Obedience trials here in Brandon at the Wheat City Kennel Club Dog Shows. In the past, our poorest performances have been at CKC shows. There are likely a thousand and one reasons for the poor performances but I’ll list only aContinue reading “On the Road Again…our CKC Adventure”

Rally Course of the Week – November 28, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 50’x70′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: Alas! An advanced level course without food bowls! Believe it or not, food bowls are not mandatory at the advanced level however you will typically find them at least once in a 2 day trial. Download this Course: CARO 50′x 70′ Course – Advanced (T11-50) If you would like to have yourContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – November 28, 2011”

Rally Course of the Week – November 21, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced Team (CARO) Space Required: 50’x70′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This team course has both teams working near the foodbowls and both each team will pass the other team as they proceeed through their half of the course.

Rally Course of the Week – November 14, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 50’x70′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This course features a winding design which means teams will be working past the jump and the food bowls without actually performing that exercise. The design of this course can be slipt up to work on many shorter sequences in smaller spaces (For example, Exercises 1-7, 5-14, 8-11 or 8-18).Continue reading “Rally Course of the Week – November 14, 2011”

Rally Course of the Week – October 24, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 50’x60′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This is a very condensed course with only six novice signs thrown in for changes of direction. According to CARO rules, an advanced course must have a minimum of 8 advanced stations. In this case you have 10 advanced stations in an 18 station course and it’s possible that you might encounterContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – October 24, 2011”

Rally Course of the Week – October 3, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 50’x50′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: This is another short course which means lots of advanced level exercises with little in between them. This means dogs are doing lots of distance and precision work. for many dogs working away from the handler is a challenge and staying in place while their handlerContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – October 3, 2011”

Rally Course of the Week – September 12, 2011

Course Details Level: Advanced (CARO) Space Required: 50’x50′ Designer: Ayoka Bubar Comments: In CARO, an advanced course may have between 15 and 20 stations. In the past, I would say most courses have closer to twenty stations so this one may seem really short to many of you but, it’s allowable. In this course, the only stations thatContinue reading “Rally Course of the Week – September 12, 2011”
