We at American Stock Dog registry are very happy to see more and more folks showing their dogs, whether at one of our stand alone shows or the other venues available to our great herding dogs.
American Stock Dog Registry has a Championship program that dogs of all ages can participate in. We hope that everyone will take advantage of this no matter where you live.
We have been trying to expand locations of our shows, just give us time and I’m sure will be in your area soon. Until then, take advantage of one of the many other venues to start getting points for your dogs. We accept points gained at IABCA, ICKC, ARBA, ICE, and MASCA stand alone shows in the United States. Basically you can use your Win Sheets at any show you go to. In Canada and Europe check with us first to be sure.
We do have an official show secretary, Kale Cowan, to facilitate quicker turn around for championship certificates. If you have questions you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail win sheets to the address below, or you may scan and email directly to the show secretary. Payment of the processing fee may be made by Paypal or check if you prefer. Paypal payments should be sent to email@example.com. Remember the fee is $10 per level. Please send checks to ASDR, P.O. Box 7510, Columbia, MO 65205.
Championships with American Stock Dog Registry start with Level 1 Ch, Level 2 Ch and Elite Ch. You may continue with Elite Ch in Bronze Silver and Gold. When starting with Junior puppies, you may only get one level per age grouping and your dog is not eligible for an Elite Ch until the age of 12 months. At an ASDR stand alone show you will receive one level of championship as long as your dog receives 180 points out of a possible 200 pts. When using other venues, your dog must receive 200 points to advance. Points are accumulated as follows:
Class Wins Winners dog/ Bitch Best of Winners Best of Breed Best Opposite Group Best in Show
