Dog Death

Dogs on ShowDog can die.  When they die, their owner will be listed as deceased.

How early a dog can die is based on their breed. Each breed's lifespan is listed on the breed's page. They can live past that age, but that is the youngest they can die. High COI can cause a dog to die early.

Dogs can also die from an offensive name or from the owner breaking a rule/cheating/exploiting a glitch.

Did you know?
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.
