Advanced: Ready to Rally!
What is Rally? Rally (also referred to as Rally-O or Rally Obedience) is a sport in which the dog and handler complete a course that has been designed by the rally judge. The judge tells the handler to begin, and the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of designated stations (10 - 20, depending on the level). Each of these stations has a sign providing instructions regarding the next skill that is to be performed. Try this course at home!
