We all waste plenty of time watching YouTube videos of people doing rally so it was only a matter of time. And now the time has come –  Cyber Rally!

  • Entry is by video.
  • There are five levels.
  • Leashes are optional at all levels
  • Lots of flexibility in choosing courses, ring size, etc.
  • No entry deadlines.
  • Courses are challenging.
  • Many signs are found nowhere else.

This sounds like it could be a good thing for the shy and reactive dogs or teams that thought they could never go to a trial

The web site is not yet complete but you can learn more about it at the Cyber Rally yahoo group

Levels I, II, and III signs and descriptions plus courses  are posted in the Files section there.

So, during the next blizzard, we can all sit home and make Cyber Rally videos….nice way to spend a weekend.


There will be a C-WAGS Rally trial April 10 and 11 in South Elgin. Canine – Work and Games LLC is a fun and friendly rally venue with helpful signs and tricky moves. Just try and do a parallel left about turn with a side switch. (It helps if you dog knows how to spin on cue.) Whenever I’ve taken a C-WAGS class we spend most of our time laughing.

Cluny and I like the Zoom class best…no sits! Onchu prefers ARF with jumps and tunnels.

 Although your dog must be registered with C-WAGS, you can do that the day of the trial or enter as FEO (exhibition only). FEO scores won’t count toward a title. You don’t have to work your way through the levels, as in every other venue, so all you over-achievers can start at the Advanced level if you want. 

Go to for rules and event details.

Get this on your calendar right now!

LTDTC’s 2010 Rally, Obedience and Agility trials will be Saturday and Sunday, May 15 and 16. All events will be at the Odeum.

On Friday, May 14 we will hold a sanctioned match.

You can bet we will need stewards all three days so when we come asking, say Yes.

Run throughs Saturday, October 6 at For Your Canine. Go to their website at

Also check their calendar for Rally on October 20 and an APDT trial November 17-18.

APDT Trial

Posted: April 10, 2007 in Trials, Matches and Run throughs

Pawsitive Partners in Indianapolis is hosting their second APDT rally and CDSP obedience trial April 21 and 22.  The trial was put together at the last minute, and currently entries are low enough that it may
be cancelled.  If you are interested in this trial but forgot to mail in your entry, please email or call Babs ASAP ie immediately.  I…would hate to see the loss of a new trial venue in this area.   There are
inexpensive hotels less than 1/4 mile away (Motel 6 and Red Roof) with plenty of places to eat.  It’s located right off I-465 near several major interstates, just a couple hours drive from Dayton, Cincy,
Lafayette, Urbana, and yes even the black hole of Fort Wayne.  The building is large and quiet with cushioned footing.  The trial ring is full sized and there is even a warm-up ring!  This would be a great
trial for people and dogs who like to show in a relaxed, laid back environment.

…premiums are available on the website, or you may get them from Babs at Pawsitive Partners
5750 Elmwood Court, Indianapolis, IN 46203

Pam asked this question several weeks ago and I thought it might be a good idea to post it for everyone else. How to you know whether to enter Novice A or Novice B?

If you have ever earned an AKC obedience title on any dog, then you must enter the B class, in Rally and in Obedience.

If you have only earned Rally titles, then you may enter the A class in Obedience, but B class in Rally.

In short, Rally cares about Obedience, but Obedience doesn’t care about Rally.
