Rally-FrEe is a fun, unique sport that combines the trick behaviors of Canine Musical Freestyle with the structure and format of Rally-Obedience. Rally-FrEe emphasizes the precise execution of fundamental freestyle and obedience skills, while encouraging creative and novel behaviors on a Rally-Obedience style course. Rally-FrEe promotes the use of positive reinforcement training methods that emphasize teamwork; it also fosters a reciprocal learning process between dog and handler.
In this 2-DVD set plus CD-ROM, you will learn how to interpret and execute the Intermediate and Advanced level signs and how to train many Rally-FrEe behaviors using shaping and targeting skills.
Julie Flanery's workshop DVD Advanced Clicker Skills: Shaping and Targeting provides the ideal foundation for training Intermediate and Advanced level Rally-FrEe behaviors. Those not familiar with Rally-FrEe are encouraged to view Julie's introductory Rally-FrEe training DVD Rally Freestyle Elements: An Introduction to Rally-FrEe.
