A look at some Previous AKC Obedience and Rally Trials at Oriole:
Handlers prepare their handling plan on the course walkthrough for the Novice Rally class on Friday night. The ‘course’, always different from trial to trial, consists of numbered stations at which a particular obedience exercise is to be performed.
A handler waits with her Samoyed for judge Lynda Moore’s instruction to begin a Rally Obedience course.
Handlers leave their dogs for the one minute out of sight sit stay in the Open A Obedience class
Dogs patiently wait in the sitting position for one minute while their handlers are out of sight in the next room. They must remain in this position until all handlers have returned to stand next to their dog and judge Donna Meade announces “Exercise finished”.
Handlers gather in the ring following the judging of an Obedience class for judge Lynda Moore to award the results and placements
After the awards and qualifying scores have been announced, judge Lynda Moore polls the group to see who has finished their title.
