|Rally obedience, aka Rally, seems to be an event malamutes just love. Malamutes typically are not that fond of
traditional obedience due to the repetition. The breed is very easily bored and then they start finding other
ways to entertain themselves.
Rally really appeals to them because every time the course is different. The handler is also allowed to use voice
commands, hand signals, and plenty of encouragement and praise.
You start with traditional obedience--the sit, the heel, the down, the stand, front, and finish. With Rally it is
important to teach both a left and right finish because you will encounter both on the course.
