Geri Lopez, Rally Junkie  

AKC Rally Judge, AKC & ASCA Rally Instructor & Rally Enthusiast!

CGC Evaluator & Star Puppy Instructor.

Member of Northern CA Obedience Judges Assn & Sacramento Dog Training Club.

Rally is my passion, love it, can’t get enough of it! I have helped many, many people earn Rally legs and titles and to go on to earn those coveted RAEs.  Several of my students have moved into formal Obedience and done well at that too. And, why not, Rally was originally developed from Obedience warm-up exercises called “Doodling”.

I actively compete in Rally and have done so for years earning at least 11 RAEs (that’s over 220 legs), bunches of High Combined awards, High Scoring breed (Schnauzer) awards, lots of perfect or near perfect scores; etc., etc.; and drum roll please…have I mentioned that I am also an AKC Rally Judge!  

Rally is fun, or at least it should be. Beau and I are working on our 6th RAE and he still loves showing. This is proof that by making it fun, you and your dog can succeed for years. He also thinks formal Obedience is fun and is working towards his UD. If you are serious about competing in Rally or at least learning the behaviors to develop positive teamwork with your dog, consider joining one of my classes.

Beginning Rally or Novice Rally is Wednesday night from 7 to 8. Advanced Rally follows immediately and runs from 8 to 9.  Classes are fun and there is always lots of cheering and encouragement going on from everyone. All Novice people are invited to stay and watch the “sharks” in action in the Advanced class!es It takes a lot of training and playtime to make a good Rally dog to achieve consistent performances, come and see what all the fun is about.

CHECK OUT:  Monthly Rally Show ‘n Go’s & Rally Workshops.

Private sessions available as schedules allow.
