2019 National & Regional
April 9-13, 2019
TRIATHLETE AND BEGINNER TRIATHLETE COMPETITIONApril 9 thru April 13, 2019
In an effort to show the natural abilities and versatility of our little hounds PBGVCA will hold its 4th annual Triathlon competition during the 2019 Kerrville, TX Regional and National specialties. The Triathlon was started to encourage PBGV owners to try training their PBGVs and to participate in companion and performance events. It has been a huge success. Owners and their PBGVs are having fun training and finding comradery with fellow competitors.
There will be two levels of Triathlete Awards available, the Triathlete Award and the Beginner Triathlete Award. For the Triathlete Award your PBGV needs to qualify in three different (agility, obedience, rally, scent work) companion/performance disciplines. For the Beginner Triathlete Award your PBGV must enter three different disciplines and qualify in two of them. With the exception that one of those qualifying disciplines can be exchanged for earning one of the following titles (only one) CGC, CGCA, or Trick Dog. Qualifying scores and titles must be earned during the 2019 Regional and National events.
All participants will receive a commemorative token for entering the Triathlon. Each PBGV achieving the Beginner Triathlete or Triathlete Award will also receive an additional prize.
