I've been pondering back and forth on this since Cricket was little and after talking to my boss more about it and her saying that Cricket would be a great dog to do so with, I'm really wanting to get into doing some competitive obedience. I mainly want to do it for fun and to work on building an even closer bond with Cricket and also to fine tune a lot of stuff and advance further on stuff. We don't offer Rally lessons at my work right now though and I still need to check out the few local places I've found that offer classes to see how I feel about their training programs etc. But... in the meantime.... how can I get started with Cricket on my own? What are some of the beginning stuff I should be working on? What are some good books that explain Rally-Obedience a little better?
