Hello and welcome
Rally obedience (also known as Rally or Rally-O) is a dog sport based on obedience. It was originally devised by Charles L. "Bud" Kramer from the obedience practice of "doodling" - doing a variety of interesting warmup and freestyle exercises.. Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge's orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position. The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do. Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course.In Rally Obedience the team starts with 100 points, and the judge deducts points for mistakes. After qualifying three times the dog earns a title, which appears after the dog's registered name. Each qualifying trial earned is known as a "leg."
There are five levels in TOC Rally:
