For training in Rally we highly recommend 'RALLY ALL AROUND' by our friend and local author Ruthann McCaulley.  It is done in PDF fashion and has accompanying work books and courses available.  Here is a link to more information: Rally All Around

For obedience and actually all types of training we recommend a book by our dear friend, Catherine Zinsky.  She is an outstanding trainer.  Her book is called Attitude + Attention = Teamwork.  Here is a link to more information: has a wonderful library of DVDs, CDs and Video on Demand.  The content covers nearly anything and everything dog training

Do you want to get involved with Canine sports such as AKC Obedience, Rally or Agility but your dog is a mixed-breed (also known as All-American) or your dog is a purebred dog but has no registration papers?  AKC offers programs that allow mixed-breed and purebred dogs without papers to be registered and therefore eligible to compete in the canine performance sports.  We encourage you to participate and have fun with your dog!

For mixed-breed dogs: Learn about the AKC Canine Partners Program.

For unregistered purebred dogs: Learn about the AKC Purebred Alternative Listing Program.
