Rally is fun, but when you look into an obedience ring you can really see the difference between the dogs. I'm doing rally for obedience practice and also to rack up some titles, but otherwise my allegiance is with the obedience ring lol. I've just seen too many dogs in the rally ring that aren't even close to obedient and yet they qualify.
Hopefully for you, doing rally will spark an interest in the obedience ring (like it was intended to do), but sadly for many people it spiraled into a different monster that the AKC just collects fees from. Many people would rather accomplish an RAE title than move on to novice obedience after getting an RE, and many people's dogs aren't capable of moving onto obedience after rally due to the huge difference in training style.
I love trialing, but I think because I did obedience first, rally (and some of the crazies that do it) are funny to me. I love dog show politics, I now completely understand where "Best of Show" was coming from.
