Rally Obedience is done on an Agility-type course but consists of a sequence of traditional Obedience-like exercises, each identified by a sign. The Rally course resembles Agility in that the course is different in each Trial and handlers may talk to, signal, and encourage their dogs. The Rally course includes elements of Obedience such as heeling, changes of pace, recalls, and turns. The elements are combined into a flowing course to make the event fun for both dog and trainer. Rally Obedience became an AKC-Titled class on January 1, 2005, leading to Rally Novice, Rally Advanced and Rally Excellent titles.
