In anticipation of our first performance event let's look ahead to other titles you might like to earn.

Remember, this is player run -
We will have a Performance Dog Registry (Google Spreadsheet) where dog are assigned performance traits which are then used to compete for titles. Titles will be tracked in our registry and players might like to add them to their dog notes or call name.

Our first event was Canine Good Citizen, what do you want to see next?

Thought I would bump this up with a repost of our results from yesterday's Canine Good Citizen test.

We had 18 entries and 9 passes.

Esandar Written on the Wind CGC
CH Castleberry Silhouette CGC
GCH-G Comet Blonde Ambition CGC
GCH Esandar Angel Witha Attitude CGC
GCH Alibi Chase A Dream CGC
TriStar Neon Rainbow CGC
Astro Travels v. Wikeen CGC
GCH-P HSs Bermuda Triangle CGC
GCH-B HSs Speed Demon CGC

You can view the test results including comments from the judging > https://tinyurl.com/yb6349mk

Be sure to take a look at the judging sheet - each dog received a personal comment from the judge on their performance.

......................

Also,
If you vote for Other in the poll, please comment with what "Other" is....

another sport I thought of was Schutzhund



We will continue voting until sometime on Sunday. I kind of have in my head a weekly schedule of performance events on Thursday (Wed-Thu are good days for me to judge)

At this point in development we will plan on opening entries on Sunday

Also,
thinking towards the future - anyone will be able to "host" an event - you'll just need to get the event "sanctioned" by

1. letting me know you want to host an event
2. agree to use the existing judging formula or have your own judging formula approved

once your event is judged you will submit your results and we will update the registry records.

This might be a really dumb question, but I was curious; how do you go about training/sessioning for these events?

You don't need to session or train.
The competition is separate from Showdog

When you register your dog with SD Performance Dogs - your dog is assigned numerical "traits"

We use those traits and different "formulas" to judge the different events.

https://sdperformancedogs.weebly.com/

that's the link to the website I'm working on to explain how everything works and keep track of our title holders.

Here's a link to the Canine Good Citizen test that we just had, so you can kind of see how things will work

There are a lot of sports/titles

I'm willing to put something together or if someone wants to take on a sport that would be awesome.

Basically, as long as there are people who want to compete in the sport - I'm happy to add the sport to the "database" and track the titles.

Did you know?
The third obedience title is a UD, or "Utility Dog", which is earned through competition in the Utility obedience class
