2016 Triple Crown Versatility Challenge
For the 6th consecutive year, we will celebrate the versatility of
our breed with the Triple Crown Versatility Challenge. The 2016
NSS Committee would like to honor those handler/dog teams that
successfully compete in multiple disciplines by offering a
challenge meant to inspire more of us to get out there and
accomplish great things with our dogs! We challenge you to start
training now in order to meet our challenge to qualify and/or
place in a minimum of three different classes across at
least two different NSS disciplines.
To meet the Triple Crown Challenge, a
dog might place and/or qualify in Novice B, Team Obedience and the WDX.

Crown Challenge will receive a special award and the dog’s Triple Crown
accomplishments will be published on the 2016 NSS Website and The ACC

ceremony (depending on when the dog meets the challenge). Prizes will be
presented to each dog’s owner of record, if present; otherwise the awards will

Example 1: “Fido”
is entered in Rally Advanced B, Rally Excellent B, Open Dog in conformation,
and the WD for field. Fido qualified in Rally Advanced B and placed third in
Rally Excellent B. In Open Dog, he did not get a placement. Since his first
two “goals” were both in Rally, and he failed to get a placement in
Conformation, he does not meet the Triple Crown Challenge until the field,
when he passes the WD.
“Ripple” is entered in Veteran Obedience, 8+ Year-Old Bitch in Veteran Sweeps,
Veteran Bitch 8-10 Years in Conformation, and the WD for field. She places in
Veteran obedience, is second in her Sweeps class, and goes first in her
Veteran conformation class. She’s already met the Triple Crown Versatility
Challenge before she hits the field!
