Introduction to Rally obedience

Rally obedience is a sport new to the competitive dog show world.  Several organizations offer rally competitions, but AKC has only had competitive events since January of 2005.  Rally has some similarities to traditional dog obedience, but also differs from it in several key ways. 
             -Handlers are not only allowed, but are encouraged to speak to and  
              encourage their dog throughout the competition.
             -The judge only gives one command (“forward”) at the beginning of the run. 
              The dog and handler then complete the course on their own by following
              directions on signs.
             -Rally is timed, so promptness of responses is encouraged.
             -Deductions are not made for the small mistakes, so a dog that sits just a tiny
              bit crooked doesn’t lose points.
             -There are lots of fun and challenging exercises you do not see in traditional
              obedience, such as 270 degree turns.


Benefits of Rally:

For the companion-
Rally teaches you and your dog how to work as a team.  This is key to having a good pet or working companion.  Also, rally is fun and offers you a good way to spend productive time with your dog.

For the competitive dog-
Rally is a good, low stress way for new competitors to get started, since the tiny mistakes do not receive deductions.
Rally is also a great way to improve the competitive dog’s heeling and teamwork, and offers one more way for you and your dog to enjoy the sport of competitive dog showing.
