    lead and you can choose to remain at this level if you wish Level 2 is off lead and a little more tricky and finally for those wanting a real challenge there is level 3 which is also off the lead This level includes some of the more difficult exercises such as the bonus exercise Retrieve finish right where the dog is sent to retrieve an object previously hidden from him return it to his handler and then finish sitting at her side The stations are all colour coded A green sign denotes level 1 a blue means level 2 and a yellow is for level 3 Within any one course you may have signs of different levels in a level 3 course there will be a mixture of signs from each level and the colour coding quickly tells the handler what degree of difficulty to expect A course will have between 15 25 stations depending on the level Teams start the course with 200 points and deductions are made for any errors such as a dog failing to go down in a down stay The judge designs the course and also decides on any bonus stations which can be performed for extra points if the competitor so wishes But be warned it is possible to lose points at bonus stations as well as gain them Obviously the winner is the team with the most points at the end During the course the dog is expected to work in a happy willing manner on a loose lead and in a heel position that is more relaxed than for traditional obedience The rough guide is that the dog s head should remain within reach of the handler s fingers or at least theoretically so if he is a small dog Rally origins Rally began in the USA where it was developed by renowned dog trainer Charles Bud Kramer in 1998 It really took off in 2002 and now there are believed to be around 100 000 active participants with competitions run both by the American Kennel Club and the US Association of Pet Dog Trainers However in Britain rally remains relatively unknown but Pam and co promoter Becky Skelhon aim to change all that Pam has a varied background as a dog behaviourist including a long career training and working with drug detector dogs for HM Customs training Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and working as the behaviourist for Wood Green Animal Shelters She founded her company Talking Dogs in 2004 Becky previously a volunteer at Wood Green has joined Pam to help set up Talking Dogs Rally She will help with the training and also man the office to ensure there is a point of contact for anyone interested in the sport Pam has been running rally classes under the name Clever Canines for the past two years which has enabled her and Becky to try out and refine the stations These have all been taken from the US sport

    allergens such as disinfectants or by reducing levels of inhalant allergens such as dust by vacuuming more often it can be impossible to avoid these contact and inhalant allergies all the time As allergies cannot be cured they will need lifelong treatment to keep them under control so dogs can lead comfortable lives There are a range of treatments which can be used Your vet may suggest just one treatment or a combination of treatments for your dog Skin supplements contain essential nutrients that boost skin health and some vets may recommend more specialised supplements to deal with certain conditions Medicated shampoos can also be used to soothe allergies When an allergen is detected by a dog s body chemicals called histamines are released to initiate an allergic reaction Antihistamine tablets can be given to suppress this reaction and reduce the effects of the allergy Steroids given topically or by injection can improve skin problems dramatically However they are reserved for severe skin disease as they can have side effects and over used can impact on long term health There are also some drugs which suppress the immune system that have less long term side effects than steroids These include cyclosporine a more targeted immunosuppressive drug and oclacitinib a new enzyme inhibiting drug which stops itching with almost no side effects Unfortunately it is currently in very short supply Instead of suppressing a dog s allergic reaction immunotherapy can be used to build up a dog s resistance to allergens Dogs are injected with tiny amounts of what they are allergic to over a period of usually between nine and 12 months Gradually the amounts of allergens are increased as the over active response to the allergen decreases Secondary problems Skin complaints can cause your dog to damage the skin through excessive scratching and lower the skin s natural defences meaning secondary problems such as bacterial infections and hot spots can occur Secondary problems usually need treating to make your pet more comfortable Medicated shampoos and antibiotic tablets are used to treat bacterial infections and fungal infections such as ringworm Seborrhea a condition where the glands secrete too much oil on to the skin can either be a secondary condition or an incurable primary condition Both can be treated with medicated shampoos and

    start hand feeding him his meal or a few treats Within 30 seconds of feeding gently lift him back off and place him on the floor again Stop feeding now and ignore him Wait for about 20 seconds and then repeat Leave him on the table for slightly longer each time If you do this regularly he will enjoy being lifted and standing on the examination table because of the positive association you have created If you want to progress this you can add the stand exercise on the table and even a pretend examination remembering to use the Kong as explained in the next training exercise Training exercise A closer examination Many examinations and injections are carried out on an examination table Training your dog to stand will help the vet inspect him and perform procedures like taking his temperature During an examination he needs to remain still and relatively happy An excellent way to achieve this is with the use of a stuffed Kong Next time he is lifted on to the table he will be anticipating a tasty Kong and perhaps not a thermometer Smear a small amount of chicken paste inside a Kong also smearing some around the top Use a freezer bag to transport it to the surgery Once your dog is on the surgery table and before he sits place the back of your hand under his belly to keep him standing With your other hand produce the pre loaded Kong and hold it out at his nose level Keep it still and allow him to lick the paste You can change the position of where you hold it if he starts going into a down or a sit Licking the Kong can also be a pleasant distraction even from a vaccination Work with the nurse or vet to establish when your dog needs to be in a stand If he can sit or lie down remove the Kong and see what he does He will likely lie down allowing the examinations to continue Another technique is to hold a piece of low fat cheese near your dog s nose and allow him to sniff and lick it as he s being examined When the examination is finished release the cheese and give it to your dog to eat You can repeat this several times It is a good idea to practise this at home before you need to use it for real Tags dog advice training behaviour vets expert All bookazines 5 99 each available from the Your Dog Shop BUY NOW More dog health care Tis the season to ensure your dog has a healthy diet 9 ways to help you spot muscle pain in your dog All abroad Don t forget your dog s passport Are acorns poisonous to dogs Are berries safe for my dog to eat Are drugs the answer Are there any natural cures for incontinence Are you lungworm aware Best hardwood flooring ideas for dogs Bladder weakness problems Brushing dogs in the winter Can clipping change my dog s coat colour Can dogs catch colds Can dogs eat cat food Can dogs get stung by stinging nettles Can dogs suffer from allergies Can I create a sensory garden for my dog Can I do my own dog health checks Can I feed my dog a mixed diet of raw and prepared food Can I feed my dog vegetables Can I give my dog a bone Can I give my dog a probiotic drink Can I give my dog tinned tuna Can I groom my spaniel myself Can I have a dog if I work full time Can I help my dog s sudden blindness Can I make home made dog treats Can I prevent my dog from getting cancer Can I stop my dog from getting mites Can I stop the build up of wax in my dog s ears Can my dog overcome nervousness Caring for an older dog Checking my dog s health Choosing a new puppy or dog this New Year Coping with Cushing s disease Coping with the death of your canine friend Could dementia be putting my dog off her food Dental care for dogs Does medicine make my dog attractive to other dogs Does my dog have cataracts Easy does it Ways to keep your dog out of mischief Feeding a diabetes sufferer Having your dog cremated He s raiding the kitchen Help choosing insurance Help for haematoma Help My dog has a yeast overgrowth Help My dog is allergic to dust Help My dog is refusing to go on a walk Help My dog is scared of spot on Help My dog loves to chase bees Help My dog suffers with her paws and pads Help My dog was bitten on the nose Help My dog s wee is burning our lawn How can I care for my diabetic dog How can I get my dog on the blood donor list How can I get my dog to exercise How can I help my dog cope home alone How can I help my dog suffering from yeast in her ears How can I make moving house stress free for our dog How can I make my dog happier in his crate How can I make my dog s hair grow back quicker How can I manage my dog s joint problems How can I repel ticks from my dog How can I stop my dog eating poo How do dogs cope if they have a leg amputated How do I choose the right vet How do I clean my dog s bed How do I clean my dog s teeth How do I create a safe haven for my dog How do I find my missing dog How do I get rid of my dog s yeast infection How do I keep my dog calm on Bonfire Night How do I keep my dog cool How do I know if
