Show Entry Tips & Event Information
If you are new to UKC, here is what the conformation and Junior Showmanship classes are; Additionally a new help guide has been added for those entering Rally.
Licensed Conformation classes are:
Regular Classes. Classes for intact dogs
RO1A is the same as Rally Novice A: This class is for the totally new handler and dog, where the handler has never titled a dog in traditional obedience or rally whether in UKC or another registry. Think novice dog and novice handler.
RO1B is the equivalent to Rally Novice B: This class is for those who have titled dogs in Obedience, but not necessarily the particular dog being handled this show. Think novice dog, but not novice handler.
RO2A is the same as Rally Advanced A: This is for dogs that have obtained the RO1 title. A dog entered in this class must be handled by the owner or member of the household. This class is again, for dogs that have not obtained higher titles in competition.
RO2B is the equivalent of Rally Advanced B: This class is for those dogs who have obtained the RO1 title.
RO3A is the equivalent of Rally Excellent A: This class is for those dogs who have obtained the RO2 title.
RO3B is the same as Rally Excellent B.
Weight pull competition tests a dog’s strength and stamina based on the dog’s ability to pull a maximum amount of weight 16 feet within 60 seconds. Scores are based on the amount of weight pulled per body pound and the amount of time required to complete the pull.
To be eligible to compete in licensed weight pulls dogs must be at least 1 year of age and less than 12 years of age on the day of the event.
Division A. This division is open to any dog that has not achieved the UKC Weight Pull Champion Excellent title.
Division B. This division is open to all dogs. A dog that has achieved the UKC Weight Pull Champion Excellent title or higher is required to pull in this division.
The class for a dog is based on the dog’s natural body weight as determined at the official weigh-in for the event.
