Here's something to rally around. If not leaving your home and getting a title on your collie sounds appealing, keep on reading. In this unprecedented time of social distancing, the American Kennel Club has come up with a program where you can stay at home and enter a Rally Event. Sound intriguing? Well, there's a few things you will have to do along with practicing with your collie before the video starts recording!
What you will basically need to do is set up a rally course in your backyard with one of the five predesigned rally courses available at the AKC site. Record a video of the performance and upload it to youtube.com. Then submit the URL to AKC and a judge will review the performance and score the team. The judge will generate a report and send it to AKC. The AKC will then notify you with your results.
One of the official AKC Rally courses you can created at home.
