WHAT IS RALLY OBEDIENCE?
Rally is a new dog sport that was created to promote a positive relationship between the dog and its owner. Emphasis is on fun and excitement. The dog and handler learn to negotiate through a course that has a series of stations with signs that display a particular skill exercise to be performed,healing such as heeling, right turns, about turns, halts, jumping, recall, walking between pylons, obstacles or people, etc. Almost like Simon Says on paws!
