    Rally Obedience is a fun and motivational sport where you work together with your dog as a team. In this class, we encourage you to use praise and encouragement. Each station has a sign that asks you to perform behaviors such as sit, down, turns, weaves etc. These obedience tasks in Rally do not require exact precision as in Obedience Competitions and therefore, more and more people are enjoying the fun and relaxation that Rally has to offer.
