Rally Obedience
AKC Rally is the new dog sport that is taking the nation by storm, a
successful stepping stone from the AKC Canine Good Citizen® program to
the world of obedience or agility. Rally offers both the dogs and handlers an
experience that is fun and energizing. The canine team moves at their own
pace, very similar to rally-style auto racing. Rally was designed with the
traditional pet owner in mind, but it can still be very challenging for those who
enjoy higher levels of competition.

A rally course includes 10 to 20 stations, depending on the level. Scoring is
not as rigorous as traditional obedience. Communication between handler and
dog is encouraged and perfect heel position is not required, but there should
be a sense of teamwork between the dog and handler. The main objective of
rally is to produce dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in
public places, and in the presence of other dogs, in a manner that will reflect
positively on the sport of rally at all times and under all conditions.
