Rally obedience is a wonderful way to get started in obedience competition. Its concept was started by taking the various exercises required for traditional obedience competition, and breaking them down into individual skills. Unlike traditional obedience competition, the team does not wait for the judges orders. The team navigates in heel position around a course of 10-20 designated stations, each station holds a sign that instructs the team in what exercise or skill to perform.
