Rally 4 Fun, other noncredit courses offer fun at MCC Fremont location

OMAHA, Neb. — Metropolitan Community College’s Fremont Area Center will offer Rally 4 Fun this fall for area residents who want to test their dog’s agility and advanced obedience skills. The class is recommended for those who have been through the Basic Dog Obedience course, a class also offered this fall. Additionally, area residents can get into their groove once again with Ballroom Dance for both beginner and advanced dancers.
The Rally 4 Fun dog course is offered for those who would like to put their dog’s agility to the test. It also helps prepare dogs for entering into a RallyO Show, a fun event that takes dogs through an obstacle course. The course runs Sept. 26 – Oct. 25 on Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30 p.m. or Oct. 29–Nov. 19 on Saturdays, 10-11 a.m.
The precursor to Rally 4 Fun is Basic Dog Obedience, designed for dogs more than 16 weeks old. In this course, dogs will practice recalls, leash manners, sit and down on command, and staying in a sit and down position with controlled distractions. All dogs under a year of age are eligible for the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Certification. Dogs at the first class meeting must wear a collar and owners must bring a four-to six-foot leash. Owners are also encouraged to bring their pet’s favorite treats. Owners must also provide proof that their dog has had rabies, distemper and parvo vaccinations. The course runs Sept. 17–Oct. 29 on Saturdays, 9-10 a.m. or Sept. 20–Nov. 1 on Tuesdays, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Dancers of all ages and skill level can also have fun in MCC’s ballroom dance courses. The intermediate/advanced course is offered on Tuesdays, Sept. 13-Oct. 18, 8 to 9 p.m. The beginner’s course is offered on Tuesdays, Sept. 13–Oct. 18, 7 to 8 p.m.
