Do ALL Dogs need to get a measurement or only dogs 18" and under?

Thanks

Sharon had posted earlier that dogs that are obviously over 18 (like Dega :-) did not need measuring for Champs.  I'll try to find the link.
It seems to me that the point is for dogs not to be running at a height less than they should be jumping (inadvertently or ...).  So if you're saying "my dog is over 18" there's no way you're getting an advantage.  But that's just MY take on it, so not to be viewed as anything other than an opinion!!

And I think Chris said that if they ran in Utah they are already good to go.

What about Corgis? For years, every time I brought a new Corgi to go get measured at a trial, I would get waved off by whoever was judging and told, "It's a Corgi. You're fine."

At this point, that is moot.

If your dog is obviously over 18 inches you don't need a form.

If your dog is obviously under 11 inches you don't need a form.

If they are anywhere between 11 and 18 inches they are gonna need a form.

Is this form required for dogs who already have height cards?

Nope.   Also if you competed in the 2016 champs you don't need to submit it.

If you have it you can definitely send it!

But for anyone in the future who has dogs obviously over 20" you're all good without the form.

The intent of the form, for anyone reading this in the future is this.

The scoring for Championships is based off your dogs shoulder height, not the height they jump.    This way we don't have a 11.5" terrier competing against a 22" border collie.   Which could happen if we strictly did it by jumping height.

So the form is needed because if you enter your dog and say he's 17" you will be scored with other dogs who are in that height group.
But if in reality your dog is 18" that would change your grouping.

A lot of folks these days don't have an accurate measure on their dogs because they run skilled, which is GREAT!   
But for Champs we still need that accurate measurement so Sporty the border collie isn't competing against Speedy the terrier.

If we have a card on file, do we need to send in a copy?

Nope!

Anyone with a height card is all good

Sorry but I am still a little confused by this.  My dog measures 20" but I run him at 16" Skilled.  Does he need to be measured?  I am reading the explanation as dogs are grouped together by actual height, not what they jump....I might be over-reading this explanation.  Thanks !!!
