Rally Obedience Gallery
Rally is a companion sport to CKC Obedience. Both events require teamwork between dog and handler, along with similar performance skills. Rally provides an excellent introduction to all CKC companion performance events for dogs and handlers. The chief objective of rally is to provide a fast-moving and motivational activity that demonstrates the competency of handler and dog in performing basic obedience exercises without requiring exact precision for success. Rally can also provide the opportunity to refine training skills for competitors in other events.
Dogs in rally obedience events should demonstrate willingness and enjoyment.

The Obedience Trial Rules and Regulations, where applicable, shall govern the conduct of CKC Rally trials and shall apply to all persons and dogs participating in them, except as these Rally Obedience Trial Rules and Regulations may otherwise provide.
Agility is fast moving, challenging and energetic activity enjoyed immensely by dogs and handlers alike. It’s also a great spectator sport. Dogs work off lead and are guided by the signals and voice commands of their handlers. They speed around an intricate course over or through a variety of obstacles, including jumps, tunnels, weave poles, even a teeter totter and must complete the course cleanly, within the time allowed. Agility is open to all breeds, and since dogs are grouped according to size, with appropriate jump height and speed requirements for each size range, every dog has the same chance to excel, whether he’s short and stocky or tall and lean.
