Rally & Obedience (AKC/UKC/IGP BH)
Yes, RALLY is a DOG sport! We will be starting with AKC Rally, however, UKC Rally Obedience could be in the future also.
In Rally, a dog and their handler move together through a course made up of 10-20 signs. Each sign displays a skill to perform such as turns or behaviors like sit, down, or stay. The dog and handler work together and should show a sense of teamwork and enthusiasm throughout the course.
The AKC offers 4 Rally Titles:
- RN (Rally Novice) 10-15 signs, on leash (3 qualifying runs)
- RA (Rally Advanced) 12-17 signs, off leash (3 qualifying runs)
- RE (Rally Excellent) 15-20 signs, off leash, 2 jumps (3 qualifying runs)
- RM (Rally Master) 15-20 signs, off leash, 1 jump (10 qualifying runs)
RAE (Rally Advanced Excellent). For the RN, RA, and RE titles, an exhibitor and his dog must earn 3 qualifying scores from two different judges at the appropriate level (Novice, Advanced, or Excellent).
