DQ or NQ, yeah well perfect is pushing it. I have been to a lot of shows, and I don't know that I have ever seen perfect. But yes, you can not qualify for a number of things.
I think its the UDX that I would not care about. There is novice, that is your CD. Then Open, that is your CDX, and it is similar to a CD, but the on-leash portion is dropped, stays are longer and I think out of sight, there is a jump, etc. The UD has sent articles and retrieve over the jump, hand signals, and maybe a few other things like the stand for exam is more than just a touch, touch, touch.
But the UDX I think is just qualifying in Open and in Utility at the same show x 10. That is a whole lot of entrance fees without really anything more. Kind of like the RAE, Go for the RA, go for the RE, but spend a ton of money to get an RAE? And the some of those people are working on the second or third RAE, this is leg 7 of RAE3, well La dee dah to you too.
No, if you are having a good time, go for it. But to me it really doesn't tell me anything about the dog.
But people are broke right now. I think I got Babs' CD in 2011, and Heidi's RA, but those were the last shows I went to, about a year ago.
