The ASFA's trials are open to purebred:
* Afghan Hounds
* Ibizan Hounds
* Irish Wolfhounds
* Pharaoh Hounds
* Rhodesian Ridgebacks
* Scottish Deerhounds an
The hounds must be at least one year old or older on the day of the
trial, and be individually registered with:
* The American Kennel Club [AKC]
* The National Greyhound Association [NGA]
* an AKC-recognized foreign registry (this includes running Borzoi
on their Russian reg. numbers.
* possess a Critique Case number [CC] from the Saluki Club of
American [SCOA], for desert-bred Salukis.
In the near future ASFA is going to require one-time proof of
registry/ownership according to new directives.
An exciting change being pioneered by ASFA is the future formation of
a "Miscellaneous" class or stake, for other Sighthound breeds
recognized by the FCI [Federation Cynologique Internationale), a
world-wide registry organization. This would allow breeds such as the
Azawak, Chart Polski, Sloughi and others to compete. While titles
would not be gained directly from ASFA, American parent clubs of these
breeds may wish to recognize the accomplishments of these hounds
within their registry body.
