Novice Rally Courses

Red and I are entering our first Rally Obedience event on October 31st at the Companion Dog Training Club in Flint, MI. I printed out all the signs and would like to set up practice novice courses on my driveway to practice. Does anyone have any examples of novice Rally courses that I can use?

I know there are books available that have examples in them - such as "The Rally Course Book", but I didn't want to spend the $30 on it if I can find some courses to use elsewhere... I bought the book "Rally On", which I think will be a good one.

So if anyone has any examples of novice courses I can use, it would be very much appreciated!!

Yeah I have the signs. Now I need actual course set-ups. I found one online, but I would like to have a few and rotate through.

You could always take the ones you have and rearrange them and substitute different signs in some. That would give you variety.

Yeah I thought about that, but I'm inexperienced and wanted a few examples of some actual courses to play around with. I probably will do some tweaking for some variety.

I have all the signs and little sign holders. I'm thinking of getting all of them laminated since the plastic sleeves I have the signs in now don't make them very rigid to stand up well. I have to get some orange cones as well.

It always seems to be set up in sort of a rectangle. So I'm just looking for examples to work off of until I get more experienced with setting them up.

Google it.. there is a website I think thru AKC that allows you to make courses yourself. If you go to shows in your area at ringside they will give you a copy of the rally ring. No method is the madness of rally!! lol

Well shoot, Burns...I'm really sorry I didn't know that anyone would be wanting courses. I guess I'll have to start saving course maps for you although we never train from actual courses. And we never bothered to invest in cones--we never could find the really cheap ones--they exist somewhere but we've just used gallon jugs--we've got a set that are actually things that previously contained kitty litter and a set that are just gallon milk jugs. Recently I started collecting the plastic bead jugs from the clinic and we have almost a full set of them. We put a little water in the bottom so that if it's windy they don't blow over. I know someone who sprayed some gallon milk jugs orange and uses those.

We also never trained with course signs--basically what we have done is to set up two lines of of markers (whatever you are using for cones) and at some point in the training session do the left and right spirals and the various figure eights. The rest of the stuff we just make up as we go along. We have tended to practice the stuff they aren't good at more than the things they are good at. You don't even need to think about courses until he can do all of the Novice exercises.

The courses tend to be pretty random. I think the thing the novice dogs have the most trouble with is the call front--it's not so bad in novice because you can still take a couple of steps backwards but as you get into Advanced and Excellent you won't be able to.

Learning to visualize the course in your head before you walk it and walking it as many times as possible help a lot.

I'm going to work tomorrow but my dog is going off with my friend who really does most of the actual showing for the performance stuff to see if he can get his last Rally Excellent leg--I'll call and ask her to snag a Novice and Advanced course sheet and if you e-mail me with a fax number I can send them to you.

And start training for the back up three steps now--I swear it's the hardest thing for long legged Dobermans to learn for Excellent--my short legged Aussie could back up in a straight line forever and my smallest Dobe, Rumor does a pretty good job. We were afraid the Toad would never get it--I spent a long time with him in the hall against the wall to teach him how to back up.

Hmmmmm--maybe you need my e-mail address if you want those course maps--dobebug@juno.com

The cones are cheap to come by .....you can get little soccer cones in the sports area at WalMart, etc. I use them for horse stuff as well as dog stuff. I think I paid $5 for 4 cones?

Good luck with the Novice rally trial, Burns!

Good idea to use jugs. I wanted to get actual cones, but I went to a sports store in my area today and they wanted $8 for 4 cones... and I'd have to buy like 4 sets of them so that would add up. Maybe I will use water bottles sprayed orange or something - great idea, thanks!

He's pretty decent at the novice exercises - just want to practice everything together on an actual course. I'm kind of scatter-brained and I think it would be easier for me to just follow what the signs say rather than make it up as we go along. I was planning on using more of the signs that we need to practice more and tweak the courses accordingly. But its nice to have something to start with.

haha, I haven't even thought of teaching the back up yet - I need to see if we're even going to make it through novice first! lol My obedience instructor was practicing it with Red a bit, and we also had to do it against a wall. I think I'll stick to the novice stuff for now though!

Thanks for all the great advice, Dobebug! That was really helpful

Thanks, ellen Maybe I'll check out Meijer and Target and see if they have anything cheap - I don't have a WalMart near me. But if not, I'll just save up water bottles for a week or so and use them as markers. I would like some nice cheap cones though! I've been scoping out construction cones but I'm too chicken to take them, lol

I just bought 5 sets of cones at Target - $3.49 for 4 cones! That was WAY cheaper than the sporting goods store - they wanted $7.99 for 4 cones, and Meijer was $4.99 for 4. The ones I got are 9" tall, nice flexi Franklin ones
