Marsha and her 8 month old puppy Storm get a perfect 100 in Rally Novice. This was Storms first show!


   


This is a new team in the N.W and doing pretty good for their first time in the ring. Tug is just a young guy, showing at 11 months in Novice Obedience.
Congrats on your CD title!


   


Marsha and Walker worked very hard learning a new venue- Field work. Walker showed a lot of natural talent in the field and earned his JH (Junior Hunter) in 5 attempts (4 qualifying scores are needed for the title).
This team will be training through the winter to prepare for the senior and master hunter titles.


   


Cindy and "Hitch" competed in UKC (Uniter Kennel Club) Rally Obedience and received a perfect score of 100 and first place!! Congratulations team!!


   


Huge congratulations to Marsha and Walker for adding "Utility Dog" to their list of titles. Walker now has RE (Rally Excellent) UD (Utility Dog) JH (Junior Hunter) and WC (Working Certificate)...........all before he is three years old!
Walker will be training for his Senior and Master Hunter titles through the winter. Good luck on your next adventure!

The basic purpose of conformation dog shows is to facilitate the evaluation of breeding stock for use in producing the next generations.

JUDGING AND STANDARDS

Each breed's parent club creates a STANDARD, a written description of the ideal specimen of that breed. Generally relating form to function, i.e., the original function that the dog was bred to perform, most standards describe general appearance, movement, temperament, and specific physical traits such as height and weight, coat, colors, eye color and shape, ear shape and placement, feet, tail, and more. Some standards can be very specific, some can be rather general and leave much room for individual interpretation by judges. This results in the sport's subjective basis: one judge, applying his or her interpretation of the standard, giving his or her opinion of the best dog on that particular day. Standards are written, maintained and owned by the parent clubs of each breed.




   


When entering a dog show you have several basic classes to choose from at what is called "the breed level". You will only be competing with other dogs/bitches of your breed. These classes are for dogs that have not attained the title of "Champion". All classes are divided by sex: Dog (male) or Bitch (female) except Best of Breed. All the class dogs (males) will show first then the classes will be repeated for the bitch (female) entries.
The classes are as follows
