I do not have a trainer in my area comfortable with training rally. I checked into a lot of books to assist me in training my dog on my own and this one seemed the best. After receiving it and getting started I have found it to be PERFECT!! It describes the moves and requirements beautifully and thoroughly. Can't recommend this book highly enough for the person who either can't find a trainer or who needs some reminders.

I'm deducting one star based on the fact that the book states that it's the Ultimate Guide, and yet only focuses on AKC. It does briefly discuss and weigh in on APDT, UKC, ASCA and some of the games and freestyle aspects of Rally i.e.C-WAGS.

If you take that part out of the equation this appears to be a well written, comprehensive book that will help hold the hand of our AKC Rally Novice A exhibitors. I do like that this books includes information on the AKC Non-Regular signs.

If you need more information on APDT I recommend Click Your Way to Rally Obedience, Revised by Pamela Dennison. Just because it says 'click' it doesn't mean that you have to use a clicker to read this book.

Be aware that organizations are always updating and changing the rules so books in print may be missing the latest updates and signs.

I love this book! It goes very in dept into AKC and someonther big rally orginaztion. I wish it would explane a ASCA (austrlain shepherd club of america) but I understand since not every one has a lovely aussie. this book is EZ 2 read. And has step to step guides on how to perform each exersize. Also has lots of color photos. I bought this book to help me train for rally it did 110%!

Being a "newbie" to Rally-O, and wanting to compete with my Westie in an AKC trial, I purchased this book as an additional resource to the Rally Obedience classes I attend. I must say that the "Proof is in the Pudding," as this book reinforced, in writing, what I learned and practiced in class. So far, we have competed in two AKC Rally Novice A trials and scored a 97 out of 100 points in both, in addition to two (yes, two) Blue Ribbons for first place. Only one more trial, with a qualifying score of 70 out of 100 points, and my little guy will have a title in Rally Novice and I will have bragging rights. After that, we'll compete in Rally Advanced and, hopefully, Rally Excellent. What do I think of this book? Priceless!

I haven't yet finished this book, but so far I love it! First of all, the quality of the book is outstanding. Nice hardcover, full color photos throughout. Great descriptions and training instructions for teaching your dog all of the Rally exercises. What I like best about it is that it doesn't stop there. There are sections for complete beginners which cover the basics, such as how to find Rally trials, how to enter them, and what to bring with you to the trial.

Fabulous book.

Rally is fun and challenging for both the handler and the dog. The explanations make sense and the descriptions clear and explanatory. Rally signs are confusing so what ever help I can get are great. Now, if I could only get the Welsh Terriers to stop reading the signs better than I do. It's embarasing when the dog looks at me as if to say "boy are you confused!"

This book answered most of the questions I had about the Rally Obedience trials. There were diagrams and pictures which I am using along with a couple of YouTube videos to accomplish the training of my dog for the start of Rally. It was a well-written book.

Good book! Wish I had bought it earlier as I think it will help those new to the sport the best. Not only does it go over the rally signs but it also has helpful chapters on what to pack to go to the show, etc. Only thing I would add is it would be great if the author discussed working with small dogs vs. large dogs as there are some differences. Overall though a really good book on the fundamentals. Enjoy and have fun with Rally!
