AKC Rally® Fans to Compete in First-Ever National Competition
Sammy with her ribbons Fans of the fun team sport of AKC Rally® get ready!

For the first time since AKC Rally launched in 2005, competitors will come together at a national event that showcases some of the top scoring dogs in the sport.

AKC Rally is a sport based on obedience and is a natural next step for dogs that have received the AKC Canine Good Citizen® award. Owners and dogs make their way through a course comprised of stations. Each station gives an obedience exercise that you and your dog attempt before heading to the next station. These can range from a simple "Sit" for Novice level to a more complicated "Moving Stand" for the most advanced level of Excellent. Handlers may talk, encourage and praise their dogs throughout the rally course.
