What is Rally?
Rally is a fun and exciting sport for you and your dog. You and your dog work together as a team to navigate through a course of signs including commands such as sit-stand-sit, call front-finish left, figure 8, serpentine weave twice, send over jump, 360 right turn, left pivot, etc. You are encouraged to talk to your dog while in the ring and have fun!
