Rally Advanced and Rally Excellent are taught at the same time.
In Advanced, all exercises are performed off-leash. There is a requirement of 12-17 stations, with no more than seven stationary exercises.
In Excellent, all exercises are performed off-leash except for the honor exercise.
There is a requirement of 15 – 20 stations, with no more than seven stationary exercises.
In both classes a qualifying performance indicates that the dog has performed the required exercises according to the AKC Rally regulations. Each performance is timed, but times are only counted if two dogs earn the same score. All dogs and handlers begin with a perfect 100. A dog and handler team is awarded a qualifying score if it retains at least 70 points after the course has been completed.
