How AKC Virtual Rally Events Work
AKC Virtual Rally is Novice and Intermediate level Rally-Obedience, where competitors run one course per event, video and submit their runs to the AKC to be judged. See the AKC website for details.
At Paws4Fun, events are held on Wednesdays, 5pm to 7pm. Registrations will be accepted up to midnight the Sunday night before the event. Entries are accepted on a first come / first served basis, limited to 15 competitors per event.
The running order, course maps, and parking plan are emailed to registered competitors on the Monday before each event. No hard copies of maps or running order will be provided. Please adhere to the parking plan, which will allow all competitors to see the runs, and will also help to block the view of any dogs in the agility rings. Walk-throughs will be five competitors at a time, masks mandatory. Runs may be done without a mask.
Participants are encouraged to bring someone to videotape their runs. Paws4Fun will have someone available to video your runs if requested in your registration form, but you must supply the camera.
If your dog is not yet registered with AKC, come anyway & wait to submit the videos until you have registered. AKC is very responsive & easy to deal with. The program is open until 31 Dec 2020.
Competitors are responsible for submitting their own runs to the AKC for judging via Youtube, and submitting their own entry form and payment to the AKC. See the AKC website for details.
There will be no food or drinks provided, please ensure you have water for your dog. All events are held at Paws4Fun Agility, see the location page for location details.
If an event is cancelled by Paws4Fun due to inclement weather, or any other reason, competitors will be notified via email no later than 2 hours before the event was scheduled to start. 100% refund will be provided for cancelled events if they are not re-scheduled.
