What is a RallyTrial?
Rally obedience is a new sport that shares some aspects of agility and some of ‘traditional’ obedience. Handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs throughout the course and may give repeated commands and signals (as in agility), but the course itself consists of exercises that are interesting variations on those usually seen in obedience. From a list, the judge selects 25 to 28 exercises to be carried out by the dog and handler, and once their performance begins, it is continuous, with no further direction from the judge.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the GKOC decided to cancel our November 2020 Conformation Shows, Obedience and Rally Trails at the LEX Complex in Lindsay, Ontario.
We look forward to hosting our annual event for you in 2021 with our November priority dates.

The membership participates in events and around the town, helping to further good will and positive canine representation. The annual Keswick Santa Claus parade, the Sutton Agricultural Fair, local business openings, elementary school visits and therapy dog visitations are but a few of the clubs involvement's. 1998 saw the club join with the local canine control arm of the town to hold their first successful rabies clinic in Keswick. As a further gesture of good will, the club donated the moneys from the admission to the annual shows to local charities and to a bursary at the local high school.
