What is Dog Rally ?
Rally 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. Scoring is not as rigorous as traditional obedience.
