Schedule of Events

Show Cards may be picked up at the USCA Office upon completion of your class. We will not mail Show Cards.

Microchip reading will be done on each dog as they enter the ring.  Chip identification will be preformed after the dog completes the performance test (exiting the field). CHIP identification IS MANDATORY.  If the chip cannot be identified, the dog cannot show (the exception is puppy classes (4-6 month and 6-9 month)

Measurements, Teeth, Testicles, & ID verification for ALL DOGS in the classes: 12-18, 18-24 & 24 mo+ will be held on FRIDAY, April 13, during the performance test & puppy judging.

Exhibitors will report to a separate ring for their dog’s measurement and verification. NO HANDLER IS NECESSARY for this. Our Breed Wardens are measuring and verifying ID, counting teeth & checking testicles prior to the stand in order to save time. Then on Saturday morning, these exhibitors will report for the official Stand (plus gun test & gaiting) in front of the judge, when their class is called. If there is a controversy on height, minimal dogs will have to be re-measured; heights, all teeth & testicles will be accounted for, tattoo/chip verified – and duly notified in Judges’ book(s).
