KENNEL CLUB RALLY
Rally Obedience (or ‘Rally O’ as it became more commonly known -
In the UK, as in the US and Canada, there are a number of organisations that regulate their own Rally trials – a trial being a series of courses of differing degrees of difficulty. The sport is aimed at all dogs regardless of age, breed, pedigree, size or any disabilities and, in particular, is both a very attractive and competitive activity for pet dogs and their owners. Here at FITdogs we teach and practice “KC Rally”.
Rally involves you and your dog working as a ‘team’ to navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform; think of it as a sort of 'obedience exercise obstacle course'. There is no pause between exercises -
Any dog can get involved; your dog does not have to be a pedigree dog to take part, but if you want to compete in KC Rally, it must be registered with the Kennel Club on either the Breed Register or the Activity Register.
In September 2014, Julie Barrett of FITdogs became the very first Kennel Club Accredited Instructor in Rally (KCAI [R]).

Regrettably, dogs with aggression problems towards other dogs and/or people cannot take part in these classes. If your dog does have a problem with other dogs or people please contact us to discuss your problem.
As there is no such things as a ‘dog poo fairy” a person must carry with them some form of “poop scoop” of bag. It is a legal requirement to clean up after your dog in public areas and dispose of the bag in an appropriate bin.
