World Cup

The ShowDog.Com World Cup (SDWC) is held each month on the last day of the month. It is the most prestigious show on the site and has the largest added payouts.

The World Cup is an invitational show and only way to enter is to have a dog ranked in the top 15 of all dogs under four months old in a particular breed. If you have a dog that is in the top 15 of all dogs under four months old for its breed, it will be automatically entered.

You cannot enter your dogs in the ShowDog.Com World Cup yourself, it is done automatically. The only way to get a dog into the ShowDog.Com World Cup is to campaign it in shows and get into the top 15 dogs of the respective breed.

In the event of a tie for 15th, all of the dogs that are tied for 15th are entered in the SDWC.

Once a dog has won Best in Show at the ShowDog.Com World Cup, it may no longer compete in the show. In other words if a dog wins Best in Show at the World Cup at the age of two months, it won't be allowed to enter again.

There is no entry fee for the SDWC.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why was my entry removed?
The entries for the ShowDog.Com World Cup are updated every day around 6:00 AM EST. If your dog is eligible for the show, it will automatically be entered at that time. On the other hand, if your dog becomes ineligible because of a drop in the breed rankings, the entry will be removed.

What happens if my dog turns 120 days old before the show runs?
As long as your dog stays in the top 15 for the breed and is still there when the show runs, your dog will be able to compete in the SDWC.

There are retired dogs in the SDWC.
Retired dogs can't compete in the WC. They will be pulled from the show and the next best dog (16th, 17th, etc.) will be entered.
