The USCA Board and The Show Committee would like to welcome you to the 2018 National Show. We appreciate your entry and invite you to work with us to assure a fun and successful event for all.
When you receive your catalog, please check your dog’s catalog entry and report any inaccuracies. If at any time you decide to pull your dog, please let us know as soon as possible.
At check in you will receive your exhibitor number. Please make sure that your handler wears the correct number. This assures that the judge and ring workers as well as the spectators can accurately identify your dog. Your number must be returned at the end of your class. There is a $100 fee for any unreturned numbers.
Please note that you are responsible to have your dog available for check-in and again for gaiting when the classes are called. We understand that your handler may be in another ring at the time and we will do our best to accommodate you. You can help us by letting us know that your dog is ready and you are waiting for your handler. It is your responsibility to listen for ring announcements. There will only be three calls for dogs to report to the ring. No dogs will be allowed to enter the ring once gaiting for the class has begun.
If your dog finishes in one of the following places for their class (all puppy classes & untitled: 1st 3 places; 12-18 & 18-24: stock coat 1st 5 places, long coat 1st 3 places; Veterans: 1st place; Working Class: all VAs, 1st 5 Vs in stock coat, and 1st 3 Vs in long coat) please report with your dog to the podium immediately following the class for awards and photographs.
Remember to pick up your show card, any original paperwork and return your competitor number at the office before the end of the event. Show cards will available as soon as possible after the class has finished.
If you have a Progeny or Kennel group, please check-in at the office by 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning. You may pick up your sign and instructions for the class. If you decide to pull your group, please let us know as soon as possible. SIGNS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE OFFICE AREA BEFORE THE EVENT ENDS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KEEP YOUR SIGN AS A SOUVENIR; YOU MAY PURCHASE IT FOR $35.00.
The catalogue includes a tentative schedule. We will do our best to follow the schedule as closely as possible. Please note that times are approximate and are subject to additions, deletions and time changes. We will do our best to communicate changes as quickly as possible.
