I’ve bitten off a lot more than I can chew, as late, and consequently I’ll need new contributors to help me pick up the slack.

Rally Freestyle Elements (otherwise known as Rally FrEe) is an intriguing new canine sport now under development in the United States, with introductory workshops currently being held in Oregon, Washington and California.
Rally Freestyle Elements is a unique sport combining trick behaviors of Canine Musical Freestyle with the structure and format of Rally-Obedience. It emphasizes the precise execution of fundamental freestyle and obedience skills while encouraging creative and novel behaviors on a Rally-Obedience style course. Rally Freestyle Elements encourages the use of positive-reinforcement training methods that strengthen teamwork and fosters a reciprocal learning process between dog and handler.
