Launched in 2010, Talking Dogs Rally is the largest, most popular canine rally organisation in the UK. Created by Charles Kramer in USA in 2000 and based on Rally-Obedience, this UK version brings fun, practical challenges to pet dogs and their owners. Starting with 200 points, and aiming to lose as few points as they can, teams perform user-friendly obedience-style exercises (stations) set out in a numbered course. TD Rally is fun for all, welcoming handlers of all ages and abilities, and dogs both mongrel and pedigree dogs. Uniquely, TD Rally encourages teams to compete against their own previous scores rather than just against each other. With 93 different exercises, four levels of difficulty, eight different classes and an infinite combination of stations, Talking Dogs Rally will keep you and your dog busy for years to come.

Foundation Workshops
These are your entry point to the world of TD Rally.  The full day workshops will introduce you to the stations and rules, explain the levels and trials and help you build the skills you need in small sections to gain confidence.  The day will finish with the opportunity to experience a full level 1 course

Club Days
A 2 hour club day is usually held on one Saturday afternoon each month . Classes will consist of working on various station combinations building confidence and accuracy. Plenty of practice time will be included and the day will end with a full course.
Classes are booked and paid for in blocks of 3.

Regarding spectators, we are happy for you to bring one person along with you to watch; however we will make a small charge for any additional and unaccompanied spectators.  Spectators are required to complete a booking form. 

Trials are held regularly around the country.  Dates for these can be found on the Talking Dogs Rally website
