AKC Rally Obedience

Rally is the perfect way to enhance basic skills while strengthening the bond with your furry friend. Whether you dream of competing or just want to have fun with your dog, our classes are your ticket to Rally fun and success. 
 

In Rally Obedience, you and your dog navigate a course, side-by-side, as you guide them through a course of 10-20 different signs. Each sign provides instructions on what you and your dog are to perform as you move through a course performing with a sense of teamwork.

Rally Obedience is a blend of formal Obedience mixed with a little Agility. It’s the perfect gateway to the fun world of Companion Sports, providing a fun and challenging introduction for dogs and handlers to boost their skills.

Rally is open to all dogs, purebred, mixed breeds and even tripods — making it an ideal starting point for those new to dog sports and a favorite among those who’ve been doing them for a long time.

Rally Classes are offered based on number of interested students. Not all classes are offered during each session.

Let us know what you are interested in!

Our next session of classes will begin the week of August 26th.

Registration will open Thursday, July 18th at ~6pm for our Charter Members.
