What is Rally Obedience

Rally Obedience can be described as obedience exercises performed in a sequence format, with the emphasis on an upbeat relationship between handler and dog. It is made up of a compilation of many of the traditional obedience exercises, including heeling, sit, down, stand, and stay.  Rally is a terrific sport to use to build a working relationship between dog and handler that will serve as a foundation for everyday life skills, other human-dog team sports such as agility and any type of dog assisted therapy programs.
