What does the color of the prize ribbons?
Posted by: Inger Handegård Photo by: Inger Handegård
It is not easy for a beginner to understand at all the different colors of premium loops.
As fresh in the ring, it is difficult to understand what the different loops and premium rings that dogs get in the ring stands for.
Here's what it says in the show rules with some additional comments.
Red - blue - yellow green.
Red and yellow, purple and national color.
premium and number one in the class.
It is not easy to understand what it all stands for.
Back home after the show day is many scratching their heads over what they have learned.
Not enough that the show is often the criticism is greatly shortened or in English.
No Premier stands like numbers under strong abbreviated names of the classes.
type m utm.
bev. an AK, CK, 4 BHK.
It may simply be difficult to understand which reward the dog actually has been achieved.
Many people who exhibit some choose to tie all the bows on a premium bond to collect them there.
All dogs considered first quality
Regardless of class, quality dogs evaluated.
In this first quality assessment can dogs get 1
premiums or 0
Dogs receiving 1
premiums will be so competitive position in which the top four dogs in the class (1st prize), ranked from 1-4.
Champions go directly to this rating.
Juniors, young dogs and veterans may receive honorable prize (HP).
Other dogs can get Certificate Quality (CQ).
More about CK and location higher up in the classes come in a later article.
premium = red bow - also No. 1 in class
Taken from the regulations for exhibitions:
premium quality class: Typically, essentially properly built dog, if the errors are so insignificant that it can be said to be a very good representative
for his race.
First Prize and the first red loop is the entrance fee to participate further in the competition.
You must not leave the area, but stand and wait outside the ring until all the dogs in the class are judged.
Then you again to participate in the contest.
Do you get a different color on the first loop prize, you will usually be given your criticism at the same time with premium loop.
You are now finished for the day and can spend the rest of the day to watch the other dogs to learn, or have a nice walk around the sales booths.
premium and placed # 1 in the class gets a new red ribbon.
The color of the rosettes can vary from country to country and if there is an official exhibition or not.
Some give out rosettes hunting and use tests.
Agility and obedience have their colors on the rosettes.
premium = blue ribbon - also No. 2 in class
Taken from exhibit rules:
premium quality class: Dog of good type and building exterior if errors are not more prominent than that it can be said to be a good representative of his race.
In some breeds it is to get a blue ribbon like "nothing".
This applies in particular breeds have been bred with exhibitions main goal for a long time.
There is often the quality of the dogs very high.
In other races are getting a blue ribbon a great reward - and that's it too!
A dog that gets Blue Ribbon is a good representative of his race.
It is, therefore, that 2
premium is what is the minimum requirement for a dog to be able to use a champion.
With a 2
premium you have evidence that your dog is a good representative of his race.
premiums that later place as No. 2 in the class, will receive a red ribbon.
2 in the final group and Best in Show is a blue rosette.
premium = yellow ribbon - also No. 3 in class
Taken from exhibit rules:
premium quality class: Dog of acceptable type, if the conformation faults are not of such a nature that it can be said to be an atypical representative of his race.
A yellow ribbon that says your dog is not untypical and that it has an acceptable type.
Not much to cheer for, maybe - but no reason to give up.
Maybe there are things you can do something to get the dog to present themselves better in the ring?
It is not uncommon to see dogs get a yellow ribbon one day and maybe even 1
premiums and more for another day.
A judge might say that this dog is larger than the standard allows, while another says ok, it's a great dog, but it also has many other good qualities.
some say the dog gets a yellow ribbon on the basis of - others say it gets a different color on the loop in spite of.
You must read the critique carefully to see if there are things you can do and you should also look around on this judge might give many dogs a lower reward than that usually given.
premium that is placed as No. 3 in the class, also get a yellow ribbon in addition to the red.
In the final group and Best in Show No. 3 is a yellow rosette.
premium = gray ribbon
Display rules are clear - get the dog 0, it must have gray ribbon - but I have not yet seen the color of the loop be handed out in the ring even if the dogs get 0 premium.
As a rule, you simply do not loop.
Taken from exhibit rules:
Prize: awarded to dogs that have disqualifying anatomical, typological
errors or atypical disposition (including aggressive dogs and dogs that bite).
The cause of the prizes will be noted on the critique form.
times are 0
premiums because of temperament given exhibition ban.
Here you should be aware!
If you have 0 premiums because of temperament three times, you display ban the rest of the dog's life!
Imagine, therefore, very carefully before you set out a dog who wants to bite the judge.
The dog need not be aggressive from the beginning of creation.
If it gets so scared in the ring that bites or is impossible to handle, it can also get 0 premium.
You can also get 0 premium because it lacks one or both testicles, a bit disqualifying faults, has a disqualifying color or is so atypical that the judge believes that denen dog resembling the breed is registered as.
KIP = brown ribbon
KIP stands for can not be rewarded.
As with 0 premium, I have never seen this color of the loop be handed out in the ring.
This says the exhibition rules:
KIP (not awarded): denotes that the judge can not decide which
premium grade dog deserves the evaluation time.
The term can only
used if the judge can not form a certain view of its
quality, such that it will not show the bite / teeth, limps or the like.
the prizes will be noted on the critique form.
The reason a dog is KIP may be that the limp in the ring and the judge therefore do not see the dog's movements.
Or it is so thick that it is difficult to form a picture of your dog's building.
It can also gid KIP if a dog coat breed is so flawed trimmed / cut or not cut / trimmed at all, that it is impossible to form a picture of the dog and the dog's fur.
KIP is something the owner can do anything.
This "premium rate" says nothing about quality or the dog's temperament, but something about an unfortunate situation that it is possible to do something.
The loops and rosettes to get the puppies not often have the same color as the adult loops, but in addition, the color pink.
Green ribbon = No. 4 in class
Have received fu 1
premium (red ribbon), and so placed as No. 4 of the 1st
prize in your class, you get a green ribbon.
The green color is also used on the rosettes awarded in the group competition and the competition to become Best in Show (BIS).
HP = purple ribbon
HP stands for the award.
To honor the prize you must have been 1
prize the same day.
Detet says exhibit rules:
Honorary Prize (HP) can be assigned very promising juniors / young dogs and very well kept veterans.
Can also be assigned homogeneous and regular breeding and farmer groups.
An HP as a junior and youngster means that the judge likes your dog well, but it's not quite ready yet to get the CC and thus could compete with the older dogs on the CC and to become champion.
HP can also be a veteran who may not be good enough to be awarded to CK, but the judge will honor because it is well maintained and fit.
Breeding and breeding classes get an HP-loop that is half white / half purple.
CK = pink ribbon
CK stands for Certificate Quality and most exhibitors dream!
CK - the pink ribbon - is inngangsbiletten to participate further in the competition.
This says the exhibition rules:
Certificate / CK (Certificate Quality): Throughout the typical, and it is essentially correct built dog, with so clear advantage and so immaterial errors that the judge
find it to be of championship quality.
All the dogs with 1
prize in the class go on to compete against each other.
In principle, everyone CK, although there are 20 in the class, but it is often the case that only those who place themselves at the top gets CK.
CK is a quality, but it is in practice often easier to get CC on a smaller exhibition than a larger one.
Not because the judge is "nicer" on a small exhibition, but because it takes a lot to a judge gives CK far back in class.
All dogs will compete with CK on to become top dog.
The same applies to females.
You must not go your way when you have CC, but wait near the ring to the best male / best bitch class is called.
CC = national colored ribbon
CC is short for CAC.
At each show there is only one male and one female in each race who can get the cert.
It need not be any.
If the judge has not given CK any dogs that are champions already, it will not be awarded cert.
In a numerous race, it is therefore relatively few dogs who wins CAC, while in a rare breed with few individuals may be many dogs who wins CAC.
Since there are cert counts on to the title champion and at least one of the three cc's required must be gained at an international exhibition or on race club's annual specialty show, it means that the number of champions can be quite the same in a very numerous race, and in a rare
It is MUCH harder to become champion if you have a golden retriever than if you have a Maremma ...
Of course, the dogs of both breeds are good dogs, but the competition for the CC is so much less if you have a Maremma with perhaps only one entered in the breed as opposed to a golden retriever which maybe 50 dogs that come on the one CC.
CACIB res = white ribbon.
CACIB = orange ribbon
From the Show Rules:
CACIB / Reserve CACIB (Recommendation to the international champion) can
only be distributed at international exhibitions and only truly outstanding dogs (who competes in class / race where the CACIB can be awarded and has recorded widely for at least 3 joints).
Normally requirements CACIB even higher than the Certificate.
For Norwegian breeds are there in Norway no quality difference between the CC / CC and CACIB.
Champion = red / green ribbon
Finally - you've got the last certfikatet you need to become a champion.
Then you have to say this to call the secretary and you will be given the coveted red and green wire.
As a rule, you also get a championatrosett the ring with the same colors.
Host and noting for those who get the last exhibition of the prize they need to call themselves champions of a trial or other use, eg.
pursuit champion, so you will not champion ribbon and rosette ring.
Go instead for the sekretaret and say that you have been champion and ask to get a championatrosett.
Unfortunately, it is often the case that they protest and say that you have to go to trial organizer - but as long as you get the last prizes in this show, then you are entitled to a championatrosett where you were champion.
BOB = yellow / red ribbon - BOS = white / green ribbon
All dogs with CK moving on to the competition to be the best male and best female.
The best male meetings as the best bitch.
It will have the better of the two gets BOB = Best of Breed while the losing party is BOS = Best in the opposite sex.
If there are no dogs in the breed gets CK is not named a BOB winner.
BOB-winner moving on to the competition to become the best in the group BIG (White / Blue Rosette - while the others in the group are colored blue, yellow or green ribbon).
The winner of the group goes on to Best in Show - BIS.
BIS winner gets national colored rosette - while the others are blue, yellow and green rosette.
Champion class = red and white and Breeding and Progeny = purple and white
A dog that participates in the Champion class gets a red and white ribbon as a proof that it has participated in the class.
In denen class is not quality - only CK-evaluation and ranking.
The breeder and Progeny have classes with HP (single award) a purple and white ribbon.
