AKC Rally® is a companion sport to AKC Obedience. Both require teamwork between dog and handler along with similar performance skills. Rally provides an excellent introduction to AKC Companion Events for new dogs and handlers and can provide a challenging opportunity for competitors in other events to strengthen their skills.
You will learn how to successfully perform each of the station exercises for the levels of rally.The dog and handler team move at their own pace, very similar to rally-style auto racing. Rally was designed with the traditional pet owner in mind, however, 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 from the handler to the dog is encouraged and perfect heel position is not required, although, there should be a sense of teamwork and enthusiasm as they go through the course.
This class will prepare dog and handlers for competition in Novice, Advanced, and excellent Rally
Dog must be able to heel, sit, down and stay.
