Rally Obedience Classes

Rally Obedience Classes

Rally is one of the sports offered by the AKC. This competitive event combines elements from basic obedience training, competition obedience, free style dance and agility!  Rally can also provide a transitional link to competitive obedience and agility or just be another fun team activity to learn with your dog! 

A Rally course is designed with 10 to 20 different “stations” with written instructions to be performed by the team. The course is numbered and the handler and dog follow the course performing each exercise.  The dog and handler move thru the course with the dog under control and walking politely on the handler’s left side. 

Praise, talking, clapping, patting your legs and all verbal means of encouragement are allowed in the ring. Repeating an exercise if necessary is also allowed. During competition events handlers may not use treats or touch their dogs.  There are many titles available in Rally:

Rally Novice (RN)

Rally Intermediate (RI)

Rally Advanced (RA)

Rally Excellent (RE)

Rally Master (RM)

Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE)

Rally Champion (RACH)

Rally is a fun and great way to continue using your Family Dog skills and to work as a team with your dog!

Danette Chorney has been competing in AKC Rally, Obedience, and Agility since 2008 with her Labradors. She & her dogs have earned multiple UD & RAE/RM titles, multiple High in Trial and High Combined awards, and multiple Agility championship titles. Danette became an AKC Rally judge in 2013 out of her passion for the sport, and strives to make it a fun and successful experience for handlers and their dogs.  Danette enjoys having the best view in the house to watch all of the happy smiling faces and wagging tails, because it truly is all about the beauty of teamwork and the loving bond between dog and handler. In 2018, Danette was honored to be selected to judge the AKC Rally National Championship in Ohio, and still actively trains and exhibit in Rally- especially enjoying the new AKC Rally Master class!
