Rally

AKC Rally┬« is a companion sport to AKC Obedience. It requires teamwork between dog and handler along with performance skills similar to obedience. Rally provides an excellent introduction to AKC events for new dogs and handlers, and can provide a challenging opportunity for competitors in other events to strengthen their skills. All dogs are eligible to compete in rally.  Handlers can talk to dogs, repeat commands and use whistles/claps and other sounds to encourage dogs while competing in Rally in front of a judge.
