Heeling will definitely be our big thing to practice on. When we took an obedience class, she was pretty good about heeling past other dogs... but I'll be honest and say I haven't practiced heeling at all since the summer, so hopefully we'll be able to get her back to where she was.

I have no idea how I'd teach her the "call to front" but I guess that's what a trainer is for!

Blaze and I took classes. But he already pretty much knew every thing. I just had to learn all the stuff lol.

will you be doing CKC or CARO? CARO is apperantly more easy going and relaxed and you can talk to your dog.

You can talk to your dog in CKC rally as well.

If you can take a class, do it. If nothing else it gets another set of eyes on your dog and your instructor can mimic a judge following you which is a big issue for a lot of dogs:

I'm assuming CKC since she is registered, so hopefully I'll be able to find CKC sanctioned events nearby.

I did a quick read through of the rules and I think it said that the handler is allowed to talk to and pet their dog in forms of encouragement, but no food is permitted. It's a pretty long document so I will have to go through it again in more detail.

You can talk to and encourage your dog but you cannot touch your dog in the ring and you cannot have food even on you within I think 10 feet of the ring gate (there's often a line drawn with chalk on the floor).

Look here for rally:

You will also need to get a CKC membership for yourself to compete and have things be recorded and count. It's I think $50 or something.

Here's the form:

http://www.ckc.ca/en/Portals/0/pdf/c...-103-01-05.pdf

Where it says referral you can put my name Amanda Shigehiro and my number 1331917 so I can get some sort of points toward next year's membership or something I guess lol.

I think I IP'd twice on that sign before I realized it was the news sign and not the about turn sign. It doesn't help that the trials start early in the morning.

This is easy! In Novice you can take a couple of steps back on this sign.

Heel, then at the sign start backing up 2 or 3 steps and call your dog. (Take as many steps as you need while training it. It's very natural for the dog to come back towards you.)

I just say "Balto come". I use my hands in front of me to guide him in to a nice straight front. You can tell your dog to sit. Actually, you can tell your dog anything you want, you can wave your arms around too. That's the beauty of Rally. LOL! No rigid body positions or commands, it's all free form.

If you need help there are many Youtube videos. Here is a video that illustrates what I'm trying to type.

Here's an example of how you can motivate your dog at a trial. There are a lot of perfect rally runs on youtube, but this one shows what Novice rally is really like. You can see her patting her leg and using body postures and arm gestures to direct her dog.
