This is a sport where you and your dog navigate a course of 10-20 signs. Each sign provides a skill that you and your dog perform. Unlike obedience where the judge gives the order of commands, in Rally, the dog and handler team navigate the numbered course where the handler is allowed and encouraged to talk to their dog and cheer them on. There are many venues that have Rally-O trials, each with differing rules and titling. Pointers make an excellent partner in this laid back and fun sport.
