Rally Rally is a new sport that has developed from Obedience. In Rally the competitors attempt a pre-set course which contains signs at various stations along the way. The judge selects the design of the course and the exercises involved. The round should be performed at a brisk pace, usually taking around 4 minutes. The signs are the only direction that the competitor receives. At the lower levels the dogs compete on a loose lead but at more advanced levels the dogs are required to compete of lead. Once the competitor has completed the round they have finished. Competitors start each round with a perfect score of 200 and the judge will deduct marks for any mistakes made. To progress to the next Level a dog must achieve three qualifying scores of 170 or better under three different judges. Places are awarded at competitions but progression is based on scores rather than placing.
