Siberian Husky Sled Dog Showcase
Saturday May 19th, 2018
(A showcase event for Siberian Husky sled dogs that work in harness)

 

Welcome to the 3rd Siberian Husky Sled Dog Showcase to be held in the United States!

 

 

Showcase will be held in memory of Loranne Carey Block who inspired me to hold the first Showcase in the USA



JUDGES:

ANN STEAD - Duluth, MN (Northome Siberians)

ABBY FALLIS - Havelock, Ontario, Canada (Northrunner Siberians)

CLASSES Untitled, SD,  SDX,  SDO,  Veterans (10 years and over).  Classes will be divided between dogs and bitches.

Eligibility Rules:

* SD/SDX/SDO Titled Dogs: Titled dogs must have proof of title (or a note from SHCA working degree chairman that your dog has it's title and is being processed).

* Untitled Class: Untitled dogs must have either proof of race records or two pictures that clearly show the dog working in harness. Dogs may work in any size team on snow or rig, which also includes skijoring/bikejoring/scootering.  You don't need to race to enter your dogs as long as they are working Siberians.  If you do not race, photos of your dog in harness or a detailed training log must be copied and sent in with your entry but we much prefer photos.

*Veteran Class: Dog must be 10 years and over.  Photos of past races or in harness must be sent with entry.  Dogs may not have run for a few years due to age.

*Spayed and neutered dogs are allowed.

* Every dog must be registered (AKC/CKC/UKC etc)

* Every dog on premises must have proof of current rabies.


 

JUDGING: The SHCA standard will be used as a framework for awarding points. Points will be awarded by each judge in each of the following categories using this point scale below. Scores will be tallied ringside. The top four places in each class will be awarded. If there is a tied score the judges will choose which dog is that placement winner.

Following the completion of the classes, the top 10 point earners will return to the ring for a parade and awards (Top 10 Award). After the Top 10 Parade, the first place winners from each class will come back into the ring for judging and award of Best In Showcase.

 

Each judge will score the dogs using the following categories and scale:

Body Structure: 1-3

Condition: 1-3

Temperament: 1-2

Gait: 1-3
