Conformation | Rally | Field


Conformation Dog Shows are the pageants of dog shows, measuring dogs against their breed standards, in physical appearance, temperament, and movement. As these shows are to evaluate and title breeding stock, altered dogs are not eligible to enter conformation competitions put on by the AKC. The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is the most well-known conformation show in the United States. A Championship title is awarded when a dog has earned a set amount of points in the Conformation Ring.

AKC Rally is the new dog sport that is taking the nation by storm, a successful stepping stone from the AKC Canine Good Citizen® program to the world of obedience or agility. Rally offers both the dogs and handlers an experience that is fun and energizing. The canine team moves at their own pace, very similar to rally-style auto racing. Rally was designed with the traditional pet owner in mind, but it can still be very challenging for those who enjoy higher levels of competition.

A rally course includes 10 to 20 stations, depending on the level. Scoring is not as rigorous as traditional obedience. Communication between handler and dog is encouraged and perfect heel position is not required, but there should be a sense of teamwork between the dog and handler. The main objective of rally is to produce dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs, in a manner that will reflect positively on the sport of rally at all times and under all conditions.

Lure coursing is an event for all Sighthounds.

The AKC offers this program that the dogs and owners love so well, to test the dogs basic coursing instinct or hunting by sight ability.

The dogs chase an artificial lure, in an open field and are judged by two judges, on the dogs overall ability, speed, endurance, agility, and how well they follow the lure.

The dogs can earn titles, such as Junior Courser (JC), Senior Courser (SC), and Master Courser (MC). They can also obtain a Field Championship (FC) and the title of Lure Courser Excellent (LCX).

The upside of this event is the dogs are kept in such good healthy shape, by doing something that comes naturally and that they really like to do.
