Understanding Sweepstakes 

Sweepstakes

Sweepstakes are a  set of non-regular classes, offered at our specialty shows, which are specifically designed to recognize outstanding young dogs and puppies.  Ages are from 6 months to 18 months old.

 

Winners of Best in Sweeps, Best Opposite Sex in Sweeps, and often all of the class placement winners, receive a portion of the entry fees as prizes for their placement.

 

 

Veteran Sweepstakes

Sweepstakes are a set of non-regular classes, usually offered at our specialty shows, which are specifically designed to recognize outstanding veteran dogs.

 

Veteran dogs are determined by age and must be at least seven years old to compete.

 

Winners of Best in Veteran Sweeps, Best Opposite Sex in Veteran Sweeps, and often all of the class placement winners, receive a portion of the entry fees as prizes for their placement.

Sweepstakes are the ONLY competition where money prizes are normally awarded.

The sweepstakes entry is made at the time you make your entries for your dog for the show.

You will include sweepstake entries on your entry form (under additional classes) whether it is by mail or on the Superintendent website.  Follow the instructions on the Premium List.
