Who’s ready to Rally?!

Our San Antonio resort, located in Northwest San Antonio near The Dominion, is proud to offer AKC Rally classes with our professional trainer and instructor, Susan Morilak, CPDT-KA.

What is AKC Rally?

AKC Rally is a team sport for you and your dog. Together, as a team, you and your dog navigate a course side-by-side. Whether you train just for fun or decide to participate in Rally competitions, this class helps to develop better teamwork between you and your dog. It can also help improve your dog’s confidence, obedience skills, and behaviors at home as well as in public.

As a team, you and your dog will maneuver through a course that features a series of signs that provide instructions for a skill to be performed. The Rally courses have 10-20 signs, depending on the class level, that include various turns and cues such as sit, down, stay, etc. As you advance through the class levels, the difficulty increases.
