Talking Dogs Rally

Talking Dogs Rally is a fun sport that 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’ including a range of fun and challenging exercises.

 

The sport is designed specifically for pet dogs and their owners and focuses on natural movement and maintaining balance by having the dogs working on both the left and right sides.
