NAMA - Dog Puller Clinic | $10, per dog April 6 | * Requires a set of pullers, click here to find the correct size for your pet, , all breed

Dog Puller is a dog sport created in the Ukraine in 2012; it is a relatively new sport whose popularity is growing. It develops speed and coordination between dog and handler, but the main principle of Dog Puller is Accessibility. The exercises are deliberately created to allow any dog or person to start their training regardless of the breed, disabilities or fitness level.

Tina Popham comes from Clemson, SC and partnered with Sergio and Varvara personally to get the USA Dog Pullers registered with the National Federation. Her goal is to establish this Dog Sport in the US and be able to offer competitions throughout the US. It's an easy sport and dogs of every size and shape enjoy it. Once we are fully established, we hope to offer to Host the World Championship here in the US.

The overall purpose of Rally is to allow all handlers, regardless of physical abilities, and all dogs, regardless of physical structure, to have the opportunity to participate and to experience success in Rally.

​A Rally performance is an uninterrupted presentation by the dog and handler without direction from the judge. The exercise used in Rally are arranged randomly to encourage a natural approach to the performance. The overall performance should convey fun, enthusiasm, and the ability of the dog-handler pair to work as a team.
