The Working Showing Trophy of the SHCA was instituted in the early 1960s. It is awarded annually to recognize the versatility of the Siberian Husky as a multi-purpose dog designed for conformation showing, obedience, rally, agility, and working in harness. Performance tracking is not included at this time.

Rules and Eligibility:

Racing Points are awarded to a dog as follows:

Submit a certified race results form for each race. You may want to list each dog's race points separately. You will need to create a spreadsheet that clearly shows each applicant dog's points.

Submit a copy of each applicant team dog's registration papers to validate the animal is a Siberian Husky and owned by the applicant during the race season.

a. Each applicant dog must complete the entire race course, running in the team
b. Each dog competing will be awarded 25 points for each race
c. Each dog receives added points equal to the Lombard-Norris point total for that race.
d. Lombard-Norris points may not be calculated and added for any dog not competing on an all-Siberian Husky team.
e. Each dog receives an additional 5 points for each AKC or SHCA Title
f. Multiple titles are counted cumulatively

Conformation, Obedience, Rally and Agility Points are awarded to a dog as follows:

Please fill out a show form for each dog with show name and date and page number of the AKC Gazette Show Results which shows the placing. The e-mail address of show results on the AKC webpage will also suffice.
