All dogs may participate!


Rally demonstrates a sense of teamwork and provides an excellent introduction for new dogs and handlers to Companion Events of Obedience and Agility.  The dog and handler move through a course of numbered exercises, all while the handler is communicating with and praising the dog.  The sport can also provide a challenging opportunity for competitors in other events to strengthen their skills.  Rally promotes a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for dogs at all levels of competition.
