Interesting. The walk-throughs are more like practice runs or dress rehearsals designed to combat "ring-wise" issues and get used to a trial environment over a training environment.

No, these aren't walk throughs. They are more prestigious wins that don't count for any AKC points. I won $10 lol I think the National futurity winner wins something like $1800. Winning the futurity at the national is a BIG deal

JimP, classes are regular offered classes that go toward winners which will earn you points. Sweeps is more of a prestige class that is done by a breeder judge who doesn't have to have their license yet.


So, its like Rings vs Congresses?

Preston,
I'm not sure either but it may be similar. Sweepstakes are usually limited to puppies under 18 months of age and there is a separate entry fee which is divided among the puppies that place after expenses are taken out. Regular AKC Breed judges cannot judge a Sweepstakes in a Breed for which they are approved. While different clubs do it differently, generally there is a Best In Sweepstakes, Best Of Opposite Sex Sweepstakes and may be a Best Junior Dog, Best Senior Dog and the same for the bitches. The winners get a very nice rosette and a proportionate split of the pot. Sweepstakes do not count toward accumulating Championship points.

Yes, but, poor quality. I am the one in the dark blue suit. Ignore my bad handling. You can see how pretty she moves

Hmm, I tried to watch the video but it said "this video is private". I did a right click on it to copy the url and tried to open in another window but still said private. Has anyone else been able to view it here?
