Pawsitive Competition Training / Performance Obedience / Rally O Results

At Hot Dog On A Leash, Rally-O is a wonderful introduction to the sport of obedience / training for dogs and owners, an opportunity for veteran dogs to remain active, and a chance for timid or anti-social doggies to get ring experience without worrying about being examined by judges. Most doggies love this change from the usual silent heeling or traditional obedience/training as the handlers can clap hands, talk, even sing! to the dogs while throughout the entire course without penalty. How much fun is that? Sign up today, your dog will tail waggin’ happy to start Hot Dog On A Leash Rally-O Classes today. Please call or fill out our contact form for prices and availability.

Competition obedience was for many years the only “dog sport” available. As a result, it developed a strong following for dog owners to go on to advanced training and competition outside the conformation ring. But as other sports were created, the face of competition obedience has changed. Many dog owners have been enticed by other sports, especially those that are easier to learn and that some dogs enjoy more. Example, AGILITY, which Hot Dog On A Leash offers!

There are 3 levels of competition obedience offered:

  • Novice: Here are just a few exercises. Heeling on a leash in a figure 8 pattern, come when called, a 1-minute stay with handler across the ring, just to name a few.
  • Open: All exercises are performed off-leash and entail heeling, retrieving, and jumping. In addition, “drop on recall”, meaning the dog is instructed to down halfway back to the owner, these are just a few of the many exercises required.
  • Utility: All exercises are performed off leash and focus on advanced retrieving and exercises at a distance from the owner. One exercise performed is scent discrimination. Please call us to learn more about how the exciting world of competition obedience.

5 stars for Hot Dog On A Leash. My golden retriever Jackson had been to many trainers, but the issues were never resolved. I can now walk Jackson with or without a leash and not have to worry about being pulled down. He loves going to Puppy Camp, 5 days a week, and has even gotten over his fear of water. Jackson also went through the Therapy Dog Program that Hot Dog On A Leash offers and gives kisses on a daily basis. Paws up for this amazing company and the trainers!

I know first hand that the Hot Dog on a Leash team is AWESOME.

As an client of Heather and Randy’s, I applaud their dedication to protect a dog they’re pet sitting. I feel extremely comfortable allowing them to come into my home and take my puppy to play for awhile!! Our dogs ALWAYS HAVE FUN and are alwsys return safe and very tired 🙂

When I have the occasion to bring my own dog, he plays with the dogs brought to the park by Heather/Randy and LOVES LOVES LOVES the attention he gets from them as well! An OUTSTANDING team of PROFESSIONALS all around!!!

Hazel is a Carin Terrier. She would run out the door to chase squirrels and rabbits and not come back when called. We always had to walk her on a leash for fear of her running off at our beach house. We were referred to Hot Dog On A Leash and Hazel is now off leash and comes back when called. Thank you to the wonderful trainers at Hot Dog On A Leash.

We rescued a 7 month old cocker/poodle last July. We are his 4th home! Needless to say, he had some definite behavioral issues. After only 5 weeks of training, he has shown remarkable improvement! We are ALL much happier! Randy and Heather are extremely knowledgable, experienced and professional. We are so impressed with the results that we have decided to continue with “therapy and service dog training”.

I couldn’t be happier with the care and attention my 7 month old husky puppy is getting with her training. We started Rogue at 5 months old in Basic Obedience and have since moved up to Advance Obedience training. I have always had prompt replies with all the staff and flexibility with scheduling.

I feel a tremendous amount of pride when my friends tell me I have such a awesome dog. It’s Hot Dog On A Leash’s understanding and enthusiasm that makes them such great trainers. Our daily routine has gone from a disconnected disaster to flawless joy! 5 STARS. Keep up the awesome work!

Heather communicated quickly and followed up on some concerns expeditiously and is working with us to help ensure that our challenges are addressed. The initial training went well and Heather’s professional follow-up on their guarantee is greatly appreciated.
