Maybe you could define some of the terms for those of us who are uninitiated? I don't even understand what a rally is. I'm sorry if I'm asking you to repeat yourself.
But, congratulations!! I do get that it's a big deal!
Rally Obedience is a form of competitive obedience where there is a course laid out with a bunch of signs. You proceed around the course doing what each sign tells you and are judged on your performance. There are, as far as I know, three main Rally venues here in the U.S. ... AKC, APDT and UKC. Kodi and I compete in AKC and APDT. (we also compete in formal obedience and agility, but explanations of those will have to wait till another day!
Both AKC and APDT have 3 levels of Rally. The first level is similar in difficulty between the two and both are done on-leash, though there are differences between the venues. After the lowest level in both AKC and APDT, all work is done off-leash. APDT Level two is about the level of difficulty of AKC Excellent, which is AKC's highest level. Level 3 in APDT is VERY difficult. Kodi isn't quite ready for it yet. AKC works on a maximum score of 100, APDT works on a maximum score of 210.
Kodi has completed Levels 1&2 in APDT, and is working on advanced titles in those levels. He has achieved his "ARCH" (APDT Rally Champion) title. He has completed all three levels in AKC, and is working on his "RAE" (Rally Advanced Excellent) which is the highest AKC Rally title offered.
Here is a YouTube video of us doing APDT Level 2 with a perfect score of 210.
If you look under KarenRandall54, you can see a bunch of other runs, some better, some worse, some APDT, some AKC, plus a couple of CDSP Obedience (formal obedience) runs. I THINK Kodi's very first Rally competition ever is there too.
That should give you an idea of some of the different venues and the two different sports. (most of them are probably also posted here on the forum under the Rally section, but you'd probably have to dig for them a bit)
Hope that explains a little about a fun sport. If you are really interested, both AKC and APDT have websites with all the rules in detail. It's really fun... Consider giving it a try!
