The Dog Training Club of Bermuda holds Bermuda Kennel Club (BKC) licensed Agility, Rally and Obedience Trials in the spring and fall each year. These trials are judged by overseas American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club judges. The trials are judged under the BKC rules.
In order to participate in our trials dogs must be registered or listed with the BKC. The BKC now has a Mixed Breed Registration so all dogs are welcome to compete! To download BKC Registration forms, please go to bermudakennelclub.com.
Dogs with foreign registrations can enter our trials by paying a listing fee. For information on importing a dog into Bermuda go to the Ministry of the Environment & Planning – Department of Environmental Protection website at www.gov.bm.
Dog Training Club: Rally Trials
BKC Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler complete a course that has been designed by the rally judge. The judge tells the handler to begin, and the dog and handler proceed at a brisk pace through a course of designated stations (10-20, depending on the level). Each of these stations has a sign providing instructions regarding the next skill that is to be performed. The dog and handler team moves continuously at a brisk but normal pace with the dog under control at the handler’s left side. There should be a sense of teamwork between the dog and handler both during the numbered exercises and between the exercise signs;however, perfect heel position is not required. All dogs must leave the ring on leash. BKC Rally is a companion sport to BKC Obedience. Both require teamwork between dog and handler along with similar performance skills. Rally provides an excellent introduction to BKC Companion Events for new dogs and handlers and can provide a challenging opportunity for competitors in other events to strengthen their skills.
