Rally-O: A Great Sport Dogs and People
Posted: Jan 15 2010
Looking for new ways to interact with your dog? Rally Obedience may be just the sport for you! Rally-O is a fun and exciting team sport for dogs and handlers. One of the most accessible dog sports for pets and owners, Rally-O combines the best of competition obedience and low-impact agility.
In Rally-O, dog and handler teams navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform such as Sit-Down-Sit, Straight Figure 8, Send Over Jump, Recall Over Jump. Teams navigate the course at a brisk, continuous performance without direction from the judge. Handlers are encouraged to talk to their dogs during the performance which makes Rally-O less intimidating than traditional obedience and all dogs (purebred, mixed breeds and dogs with disabilities) are encouraged to participate.
