25 What are the AKC titles?




Description

This article is from the Lure Coursing FAQ, by Bonnie Dalzell with numerous contributions by others.

25 What are the AKC titles?

Junior Courser (JC)
The hound must run in 2 events under 2 different judges or
judging panels. The hound will run alone on a course of at
least 600 yards that has at least 4 turns. The hound must run
the full course with enthusiasm, not stopping to visit with
spectators or take a potty break during its run. The judges
award a "pass" or "fail" not a numeric score.

Senior Courser (SC)
After January 1, 1994 the SC title is awarded based upon the
hound's performance in 4 AKC field trials. Prior to that date
the title was awarded based upon performance in 2 AKC field
trials. To earn an SC the hound must receive a qualifying score
in 4 AKC field trials under different judging panels.

Field Champion (FC)
This title proceeds the hound's name. This title is awarded
once the hound has accumulated 15 AKC Lure Coursing Points.
There must be at least 2 firsts valued at 3 points or more
issued by two different judges or judging panels.

As of Jan 1, 1994 the AKC point scale is as follows:

                          Points for first place
                       5         4         3        2       1
 ------------------------------------------------------------
                   number of hounds in competition

 Whippets              15        11        8        5       2
 Borzoi, Rhodesians    10         8        5        3       2
 Balance of sighthound
 breeds                 6         5         4       3       2

* When first place earns 5 second place earns 3, third place earns
* When first place earns 4 second place earns 2, third place earns
* When first place earns 3 second place earns

This will certainly be revised in the future, but not in 1995
