Rally obedience (also known as Rally or Rally-O) is a dog sport based on obedience.
Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge’s orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position. The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do. Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course.
An exciting competitive event open to all dogs: purebred, mixed breeds and rescue dogs of all types and ages. All dogs can benefit from the training and fun of Rally Obedience! Rally Obedience is a fun, fast-paced demonstration of a dog and handler’s ability to perform basic obedience exercises; as well as offering an opportunity to showcase teamwork between you and your dog.
