A call name is a shortened version of your dog’s registered name. The call name space on ShowDog.com can also be used to help you manage your kennel. You can put “Needs sessions” or “Needs showing” in the space, or, if you like to use an evaluator to get a percentage for your dog, you can put that information in the call name space. Use your imagination and you can make the call name feature work for you.

There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
