Rally is a relatively new dog sport that offers handlers and their pets an experience that is both stimulating and fun. The dog/handler team move at their own pace, similar to that of rally-style auto racing, throughout a course of signs displaying obedience tasks to be done. It was originally developed for the traditional pet owner, however, due to the fact that there are many levels, it can also be challenging for those who are more competitive.
A rally course includes 10-20 stations, each displaying a certain task to be performed, such as sit-down-sit, Figure 8, Send over jump, etc. Owners are encouraged to communicate with the dog throughout the performance, unlike that of traditional obedience competitions. There should be a sense of teamwork between dog and handler.
