Exhibiting

Pugs are more than capable of exhibiting in several various companion performance events. Many pugs are active in conformation, agility, obedience, rally, and therapy visits. The Pug Dog Club of America recognizes pugs who have titled in several different AKC events with a Versatility Award. PSPDC encourages their members to get involved with their pugs. Owners and their dogs can exhibit within several different titling organizations, depending on the activity. A few recognized groups include the American Kennel Club (AKC), United Kennel Club (UKC), International All Breed Canine Association (IABCA), and several agility oganizations (AKC, NADAC, ASCA, TDAA — Tea Cup). Many canine fancier clubs allow mixed breed dogs (All American/Rescued dogs) and purebreds without Registry papers (PALs, ILPs, and Purebred Rescued dogs) to exhibit in the non-conformation performance events. There are also several Junior activities that children (18 years of age and younger) can participate in with their dogs. 4-H clubs are a great place to help families wanting to get involved with dog shows. Dog show events are a family affair and the public is always welcomed. Click on the links below to learn more about some of the performance activities.
