About Rally Trials
a sport involving both handler and dog teaming together to complete a course including 10 to 20 stations. The
dog is evaluated and scored by a judge. All dogs receiving a passing score earn a leg toward a title and can win
ribbons or prizes based on the score. Upon the completion of the required number of legs required for a specific title,
the AKC will issue a title to the dog. Each of the following titles is progressive and the level of the difficulty of
the course increases with each title.

AKC sanctioned Rally events twice a year in March at the Tarheel Cluster Dog Show and in September at the Tarheel Labor Day
Cluster. Carol Polak is the Rally Chair, and manages these events.
