Rally Obedience, also known as “Rally O”, is a dog obedience sport that goes beyond the basic heeling, emphasizing fun and excitement for all involved — the dog, handler, and spectator. Rally Obedience includes over 40 obedience movements and is the ideal sport for those wanting a fun activity, designed to challenge and improve teamwork between the dog and his handler.
Dog and Handler teams navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform such as Sit-Down-Sit, Straight Figure 8, Send Over Jump, Recall Over Jump. Teams navigate the course at a brisk, continuous performance without direction from the judge. Handlers are encouraged to talk to their dogs during the performance.
All dogs, purebred, mixed breeds and dogs with disabilities are encouraged to participate.
The Novice Rally O class is 8 weeks long.
The registration fee is $135.00
