Nicole offers several self study options through Fenzi Dog Sports Academy. Classes are all available “on-demand” and you gain instant access with purchase.

Rally Signs: Novice Through Excellent

This self study course contains all of the Novice/Level One signs from AKC, ASCA, UKC, and WCRL Rally. It also contains all of the Advanced and Excellent signs from AKC Rally. Each sign has its own lecture and is labeled by the AKC number and name, making it easy to find. In each lecture, you will find a picture and description of the sign. You will also find a video demo that I did and the video demo from the AKC website. Finally, I have included tips for each sign to help you avoid common mistakes. If you are looking for a course to teach you the rally signs, this is it! These organized lectures will be the perfect addition to your rally library and will be a great resource to refer back to again and again.
