Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of designated stations where the team performs a simple to advanced obedience exercise, depending on level. Each of these stations has a sign providing instructions regarding the next skill that is to be performed.  Scoring is not as rigorous as traditional obedience.
