Rally Obedience (also known as Rally or Rally-O) is a dog sport based on obedience. Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge's orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position. The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do. Rally Obedience encourages communication between the handlers and their dogs through the courses.
At Dog Zone, we teach all styles of Rally O. There are currently five sanctioning bodies for Rally-O in the United States: AKC; UKC; Cynosport World Rally League (CWRL); Canines and Humans United (CHU); and Canine Works and Games (C-Wags).
CHU and C-Wags are relatively new organizations that appear mainly in the Mid-west.These two organizations have kept Rally O in it's original format with the games and challenges.
