I'll be there. No one entered but going to watch a friend in Rally. It is a nice show, hopefully lots of good vendors!

Then, the 1st place winners in each class will come back in the ring for Winners Dog. THe winner of this will be the dog that wins the points. Then, the 2nd place dog from the class that the Winners Dog came from (ie 12-18, or Open, etc - whichever he was originally in) will come back in with the other dogs left and the judge will then choose Reserve Winners Dog. No points, UNLESS for some reason Winners Dog is declared ineligible and disqualified. THEN, they do the same thing for bitches (females). THEN, all the specials (champions) come in, as well as Winners Dog and Winners Bitch. They compete for Best of Breed.
The judge will choose Best of Breed. Then Best of Opposite Sex (If Best of breed is a male, Best of Op will be a female) and Best of Winners (either the Winners Dog or the Winners Bitch. Usually Best of Breed is one of the specials, BUT Winners Dog or Bitch can go Breed, automatically making him or her Best of Winners. I won't even go into how that can change the points - it's late and my eyes are getting blurry...
Best of Breed winner will then go on to compete in the Group (SPorting for Goldens.) Placements are again 1-4. Group Winners then go on to compete for Best in Show.
Thank you!! This should be a sticky for people like me!

If you go to infodog.com / show information / search by state (MA), then select the show(s) you are thinking of going to, an option on the left menu is the Judging Program; selecting this option will bring up a PDF with all of the ring times and ring numbers(agility is not listed on this site but on pawprinttrials.com trials, then choose the cluster, then the cluster confirmation) for ring times and running order. Goldens are usually in the 20 or 24 inch classes for agility.

I am entered in Graduate Novice/Graduate Open Fri, Sat and Sunday with Casey but he has gained another 1.5 pounds so I may be just socializing since I am just not comfortable jumping him until this weight thing is resolved.
Thanks, this is what I needed! I was in infodog.com, but couldn't find the ring times/numbers so this is great!

Good luck with Casey if you decide to compete!

That's what I've heard, I think I might get in trouble with all that shopping!
