The RallyOnline Group aims to provide online Rally competitions (as close as possible to KC Rules & Regulations) and training events -
Our aims are to widen the reach of Rally, and encourage more handlers and dogs to get involved.
The benefits are RallyOnline will be available anywhere, not just to those who can attend a club/show. The RallyOnline Group also has the aim of sharing videos to help improve standards in the sport.
The plan is to have regular competitions and a results league…to keep people motivated and involved. Some will be “special” mentoring events where experienced Rally Judges provide feedback. Doing the training is the biggest part of Rally…our motto is “if it ain’t fun, it won’t get done”…
We are currently putting in the work to demonstrate to the Kennel Club that this competition format will work… with a goal of achieving KC licenced status for Online Rally Competitions! Watch this space for developments. While the RallyOnline Events are currently unaffiliated, they will all be run as if they were licenced…this means that we are using the same standards and regulations.

Update from the April Event
Tightening up of criteria for video entries…. Bear in mind the ring = your video, the whole time it is running…..
No food in the ring.
No toys (if your dog behaves as if your lead is a toy, then so will the judge).
Enter AND exit on lead (Start & end of round, on the video).
The Whole ID process – all levels, every time. No grabbing dogs to put the collar back on.
Handler &/or dog must be in view at all times.
Teams have to enter the lowest level they are eligible for.
Filming must be in landscape format.
No impugning Judges decisions – this includes emoji comments, online banter, etc.
No sharing/posting competition rounds before Judging is completed…other than uploading & sending the link with the entry.
Any problems, concerns, or questions…with ROL video competitions ask the Chief Steward – email, message, phone.
The only exception to this would be where a handler was filming solo… the video would start /end with the team out of shot…. But once they appear in the frame…they are in the ring…
If we are going to create a valid proposal for these video competitions to become a recognised part of mainstream Rally….then we have to be rigorous in applying show conditions, rules & regulations.
