Ginger and I started in Rally to practice our team building skills in a friendly and fun environment. It has been a wonderful learning experience for both of us. Both the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) and the American Kennel Club (AKC) have Rally competitions. To date, Ginger has her "Rally Advanced" (RA) in ASCA and her "Rally Advanced" in AKC.
Alaska's first ASCA Rally trial took place in March 2012. This was the first time Ginger and I had competed in any dog sport. We took 3rd in the AM trial with a 187, and 1st in the PM trial with a 195 (qualifying X score). Ginger earned her ASCA RN title in her third ASCA Rally Trial with a score of 193. There were over 20 entries in Novice B that day. Congrats Ginger! Ginger earned her Rally Advanced in July 2014 in Chugiak, Alaska.
