Getting Started As A Competitor
Register Your Dog
Your dog will need an NDS Competition Registration Number in order to compete in any NDS event. Good news- one number lasts the lifetime of your dog, with no renewals- and it’s good for all sports!
Review Sport Rules
Each active sport has a page with overviews for both the test (virtual and in person) and trial (in person competition) options- and links to the full sport rulebook. Check them over and let these rules and guidelines support your training!
When your dog is ready to compete, you’ll be able to see the list of planned events on our website. Click each event’s premium and entry link to get full details as well as entry form information or links.
Compete & Enjoy!
Submit your virtual test videos, or attend your in person trial and event. Earn certificates, ribbons and placements or accumulate scores for badges and titles.
