Rally-O, or simply Rally, is a fun and exciting team sport for dogs and their handlers. If you like to play games and have fun with your dog, Rally could be just for you! Join Behavioral trainer Alli Jerger for a 30-minute introduction to Rally and run a fun course with your dog! You don’t have to be sports-oriented for our family-style Rally class which is suitable for both dogs and puppies, of all ages and fitness levels.

Classes will take place every half hour (between noon – 3:00) on Saturday, September 24 at the Humane Society of Jefferson County (W6127 Kiesling Rd.) in the play yard on the south east side of the shelter.

Dogs must be “people friendly,” “dog friendly,” current on all vaccinations, and leashed with a 4’ – 6’ non-retractable leash. Owners are responsible for picking up doggy doo!

There is no charge for the class, but donations from the shelter’s ‘wish list’ are truly appreciated!
