Rally-O is the newest sport offered by the AKC. At a Rally-O event, signs lead dog and owner through a series of exercises. The dog must perform one before going on to two, and so forth. The dog can do the exercises on leash or when well-enough trained, off leash. The exercises can be as simple as having the dog Sit, and then increase in difficulty. Many trainers are now offering Rally-O training. This is a great introduction to competition—it's fun, there's little to no pressure, and anyone can do it with some pre-training. Go to the AKC's website, www.akc.org, for more information.
