UKC Rally


Rally exercises are similar to many of those performed in Obedience. In Rally, the dog and handler go thru a course of 10-20 stations, each identified by a sign which tells the team what to do at each station. Stations have instructions like "Down your dog and walk around" or "Weave thru a series of cones". An advanced UKC rally course will chose from over 50 different instructions to be done at each station. Each dog and handler starts with a score of 100 and points are deducted from that. Although the course is timed, time is not used unless there is a tie in the number of points. It is more important to perform each station accurately than it is to do it fast.
