Iron Dog

Iron Dog

In celebration of our versatile Vizslas, this competition that is held as part of the National Specialty and Companion Events that is held the 17th week of the AKC Corresponding Date Calendar. Iron Dog highlights the wide-ranging abilities of the breed. Entries in Iron Dog are open to AKC-registered Vizslas, including spayed and neutered dogs of all ages. Iron Dog points accumulate from classes entered in Conformation, Rally, Obedience and Agility. After all competitions are completed, the overall winners will be crowned.

Professional handlers are allowed; however, amateur owners will receive a 30-point bonus added to their conformation score for handling their own dogs in all venues. Any professional handler who is listed as an owner and handles the dog in all other Iron Dog events is eligible for the bonus.
