The AWC Versatility Competition was developed to recognize Whippets that excel in four areas of competition: conformation, lure coursing, rally and agility. The competition is open to all Whippets entered in Triathlon/Versatility conformation, rally, agility, and lure coursing offered at the AWC National Specialty. Teams may enter both the Triathlon and the Versatility Competition.  There will be 10 placement awards.

Teams will be given ranks based on their scores in the respective competitions. The ranks will be averaged with the lowest total average winning.


Conformation: The Triathlon/Versatility Conformation judge this year is Linda Buccholz

Lure Coursing: The AWC National trial will be held on Sunday, April 16th and will be an AKC trial.

Rally: Only ONE class is allowed for Versatility scoring and must be declared at the time of entry.

Agility: Dogs must enter both the Standard and JWW classes

NOTE: For both Agility and Rally: If your dog has a title or legs toward a title you may not enter a lower class and utilize that score for this competition. In addition, you may not compete at a lower Preferred level in Agility. If you do, your dog will be disqualified from the competition. All dogs must be handled by their owner in each event (including conformation).  If you have more than one dog entered, you may use a handler for the group portion of conformation.  NO professional handlers unless they co-own the dog being handled.
