Noob rally question

Running, catching, leaping; this is the forum to discuss dog sports and agility training with other active pups!

I was looking at the APDT rally signs and I'm a little confused after watching some videos on youtube. Which sign indicates that YOU move around the dog and which sign indicates the dog moves around you?

It's probably a very silly question, but hey... I gotta start somewhere lol.

The signs that say "walk around" means you walk around your dog and stop back in heel position. The sign that says "finish right" means your dog walks from the front position, around behind you back to the heel position.

Maggie (as usual) is on the money. The only thing I would add is that there is no such thing as a silly question!

You should be aware that APDT Rally has been sold to the USDAA. At the moment, the plan is to leave Rally as it is, carry over all the dogs regs, titles, championships and our judging statuses.

Not a bad thing, not a good thing, just a thing you should know.
