Rally O, was designed to be a stepping stone from the Canine Good Citizen and formal obedience. It is a series of signs on a course that you have to follow. Here is a link to some CKC Rally O information.. It is alot of fun.

PS: In Canada the CGC is called the "Canine Good Neighbour"

Time is usually only used for tie breakers. You will also generally get NQ'ed if you try and run thru it too fast. So with toy dogs, your goal should be to get a higher score than the big dogs who can walk the course a lot faster. Then you won't even have to use the time! Isabelle, my 5lb maltese took first place to 2 irish wolfhounds. I didn't ask the weight but they told me they eat 8 cups of food a day <YIKES> but time wasn't an issue because she scored higher!

Rally is tons of fun though. I like that I can talk and give them reassurance. I don't get as nervous in rally!

Thanks Very Much for Clarifying for me. I wasn't aware of the event and how it was based.

Thanks

The first level of Rally in AKC is on leash, so it is a great way of getting a dog used to being in the ring. At first, I practiced with Dora at home. I had her fully trained, she knew the exercises, etc. I took her to a competition and had never done a match where the judge walks behind you and scores you. Well after every sign, Dora would turn around stare at the judge like mom, this lady is following us, shouldnt we do something about it! Let's just say i didn't get teh score I quite expected and I learned to have a pretend judge in the ring!

You can compete in rally when the dog is 6 months old too!

P.S. Here are the giant irish wolf hounds and Belle after our last rally trial!

Rally is really fun. Sam and I are going to our first Rally match tomorrow. It is a outdoor trial and the weatherman is calling for rain and thunder showers. Should be fun.

PS I may be able to get some July "wet" pictures. LOL

Debbie & Sam, Good luck! Here, the biggest novice mistake is tight leash. A lot of people just carry the leash wrong and it looks tight the entire way. Also novice people get so nervous they walk past a sign and not see it and NQ. My friend did that this weekend. She ran out of the ring and we all knew what just happend! I wish you guys luck and hope the rain happens after your run!
