Show Protocol:

• This show will be held outdoors regardless of weather. Appropriate clothing and footwear for running is recommended. Rain gear, water for your dog and shade cover is always advisable.
• There will be NO grooming at the Show Site. Please be ready when the class is called into the ring.
• The Judge will decide based on Entry size if/when there will be a lunch break.
• Dogs must be shown on a loose lead. Use a slip-type collar or fur saver (chain, leather or fabric) and a 6 ft. leash (leash does not need to be on the “dead ring”).
• NO double handling from outside the ring.
• Dogs will be moved generously to evaluate movement and condition (change of handler is permitted).
• Teeth will be examined for correct alignment and dentition. Structure as well as Character, Temperament, and Physical Condition will be evaluated.
• The Judge will evaluate each class as a group, then direct the handlers to move the dogs around the ring at a brisk trot one or more times. The dogs must move freely on a loose leash.
• A dog that shows aggressiion toward the handler or Judge or exhibits extreme shyness, preventing examination, will be excused.
• After the Judge physically examines each entry the Judge will direct the handler how to move the dog as well as when to return to the end of the line. After the last entry is fully examined the Judge will move the entire class around the ring. Usually this is the time the dog’s physical condition is examined and will require the dog and handler to maintain an extended amount of time at a brisk trotting pace. If a handler becomes tired he/she is allowed to “hand off” the dog to a 2nd handler. Please be careful not to impede any dog’s movement. If any dog or handler appears to be tired the Judge may motion the dog and handler to the side of the ring.
• At the Judge's direction each dog and handler will come forward for the evaluation.

The Judge will address the spectators, then direct the dog and handler to return to their place in line.
• Awards will be presented in the ring after the evaluations have been given.

• All Competitors must use the Entry Form downloaded from this website. A completed form is required for each entry.
