I'll try! I was so nervous in the breed ring, I could barely show the bite because I was shaking so badly. I hope Rally is easier on my nerves

Do you think I can leave on the show lead in addition to the buckle collar? I would wrap up the show lead and hold it in place with a rubber band - that's what I do if I crate him between breed and group ring. I can't take off the show lead while the hairspray is in.

Question: Can I leave the small name tag on the collar? Or does this rule forbid it? "Nothing may be hanging from the dog’s collar."

I would ask the judge, I donít know if they would make and exception for you. Normally you have to remove flea collars like the Seresto flea collar and leave only the buckled collar. No tags dangling. My dog collar has a brass plate with her name and my contact information which is riveted onto the collar and that is allowed.

I have heard from a few friends that some judges have allowed the seresto to remain on the dog, but all the judges Iíve shown to refuse to allow the dog to wear one. Maybe a judge will allow the show lead to remain as you are also showing in conformation? It would be nice if they would.

The Rally Rules:

Section 14. Use of Leash. All dogs must be kept on a leash except when in the rally ring, warm-up ring or exercise area and must be brought into and taken out of the ring on leash. Dogs must be kept on leash in the ring when brought in to receive awards. Except where otherwise specified in these Regulations, the handler will leave the dog’s leash on the judge’s table or other designated place. The leash must be made of fabric or leather and need only be long enough to provide adequate slack, unless stated otherwise in these Regulations.

Section 15. Collars. All dogs in the rally ring must wear a properly fitted collar approved by the judge. No special training collars, such as electronic collars or prong collars will be permitted. Nothing may be hanging from the dog’s collar.


I would assume your show lead would be just fine to use in the rally ring. It's not electronic, and it doesn't have prongs. And since you're in Novice, you wouldn't be taking it off in the ring at all.

My rally class is taught by a rally judge. I'll ask her tonight and get back to you.

Our show lead is a slip on chain. That seems very harsh for Rally, I'm afraid I'd strangle my dog. Also, I'm trying to use different collars and treats for different activities as contextual clues. Don't want my dog to heel in conformation or to sniff in Rally or to stack in Scent work.

That would be great! Thank you so much.

Spoke to a rally judge. You need a separate collar and a leash. How you are going to remove the show lead without wrecking the spray up, I donít know. Folding it wouldnít be acceptable in her ring. Speak to the judge, but be prepared to change leashes.

Thank you so much for asking your trainer! Really appreciate it. That's good to know that folding it up is not acceptable. I'll use my Rosco instead of the chain on that day. I can blow out the neck a little bit to loosen the spray around the lead and the Rosco can fit over his sprayed up head.

I'm excited about our trial!

Thank you all for your help here. I removed the show lead and put on the regular leather collar. My puppy did really well, we got 100 points. He was so focused the whole time.

I can't wait to sign up for more Rally!
