Measurements, Teeth, Testicles, & ID verification for ALL DOGS in the classes: 9-12, 12-18, 18-24 & 24mo+ will be held on FRIDAY, April 21, 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).
