What is Rally?
Rally is an obedience sport where dog and handler teams complete a rally
course designed by the judge. Teams proceed at their own pace through a
course of 10-20 designated stations performing the exercises described on
each station sign. Communication between handler and dog is encouraged
and there should be a sense of teamwork between dog and handler.
Judging in rally obedience is not a strict as in traditional obedience; perfect
heel position is not required. It is meant to be a fun way to practice
obedience skills that are needed to be a well-behaved dog in the home and
in public places.
This is an open course for all students who have completed Beginning
Rally. The focus of this class is to practice on new courses, prepare for
competition, and learn new signs
This is an introductory course to the sport of rally. The class focuses on
mostly on AKC Novice level signs and how competition structured. By the
end of class students will have learned most of the novice signs and learn
how to navigate a 10-12 sign course.
