I know this is probably an awfully silly question, but what exactly is "Rally"?

Rally (formerly called AKC Rally Obedience) is described here: http://classic.akc.org/events/rally/getting_started.cfm

And there are many, many Youtube videos of the event.

A rally course has a series of signs that tell the handler what "exercise" the dog is to do. Many of us feel learning to read the signs is the most difficult part, at least in the beginning. At the novice level, the dog is on leash and the handler is allowed to talk to the dog/give multiple commands.

Many of us start our dogs in Rally and then move to traditional obedience.
