AKC Rally Virtual Trials
AKC Rally Virtual Trials are a great way to earn your Rally titles in a quiet, private setting. This is perfect for people who:
have a dog who is reactive or easily distracted
are anxious about crowds or about performing in front of them
would rather know the course that is going to be offered
are busy and need Rally Trials to fit their schedule
The AKC has 5 approved Rally courses for Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Excellent. You can find them here. You should also read the AKC Rally® Virtual Program Guidebook for everything you need to know.
From time to time, Supporting Paws will host a Virtual Rally trial for certain levels, offering certain courses. These are nice because they give you a deadline to work towards. You will be the only competitor in the barn; Ruth Anne and Norina will be there to answer questions and film your performance. Our next Rally Virtual Trial is Sunday, September 10, 2023. You can sign up here; the entry is $10 for 30 minutes and you can pay at the door.
If that time does not work for you, Ruth Anne is happy set up a course at a time that fits your schedule. For more details, contact her (text is best!) at 717-585-7478. You can send payment to Norina via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
