Class List

CLASS NAME                                    DESCRIPTION
Musical Sit A fun way to test how quickly your dog listens to the 'sit' command.  Played just like musical chairs.  The last dog to sit when the music stops is out.
Dog/ Owner Look Alike Do you and your pet look alike?  Share the same sense of humor?  Starting to wear the same clothes?  Join this class and let's see what the judges say!
Waggiest Butt Does your dog get so excited he/she knocks things over with his/her tail?  Does your dog not have a tail?  Well, he/she is still welcome to show us his/her waggiest butt wiggle!
Best Vocal Move over Barbara, get out of the way Celine, this class features canine crooners with the most unforgettable vocal talents.  Does your dog bark on command?  Does your dog howl to music?  Whatever type of vocal sound your dog can make, we want to hear it!
Best Biscuit Catcher Does your dog have talent when it comes to eating snacks?  Let's see who can catch the most dog treats.  Even if your dog doesn't catch treats in the air, you can still join in the fun of giving your dog treats!
Best Hair Does your dog have a Mohawk, a fantastic poodle cut, or is he/she just so slick and shiny?  Does your pet enjoy wearing wigs?  No matter what type of hair your pet has everyone is welcome to join in the fun!
Most Mysterious Heritage You won't see this class at Westminster!  A class for those lovable pets whose features cross all lines of breed characteristics.
Best Trick You've put in hours teaching your dog how to do tricks, so come on out and showcase your hard work?  It doesn't have to be anything outrageous - show the judge anything your dog can do!
Costume Classes This should be the most fun of all!  You and your pet can dress however you would like (keep it family friendly).  Here are a few costume ideas:  Scariest, Food, Most Creative, Pirates, Superhero, Western, Best Duo, Dressed for a Date, Royalty, Pop Star and Show Your Nationality Pride.
People's Choice This will be the final class of the day and does not require registration.  All participants who haven't placed in other classes through-out the day will join in this class.  Everyone, including the spectators will vote on their 'People's Choice.'
