Rally & Obedience (AKC/UKC/IGP BH)

June 2022:

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).

Other sports we plan to do of this type are listed below.  More about these as they happen!
