News & Updates

Judge Changes

We've made some changes in our judge lineup. See below for updates.

Novice Earthdog

Note that at these tests we are offering the new Novice Earthdog class. NE is very similar to IQ (10-foot, one-turn tunnel), except that neither the judge nor the handler may help the dog after the release. Novice Earthdog is a titling class: two passes under two different judges earns a NE title.

At our tests, dogs who have not yet earned an Earthdog title may be entered in any combination of IQ, NE, and/or JE.
