Does a dog have to be "Pure" to compete in SchH or other sports?

Hi, had dogs all my life, but am new to dog sports. Wondering if a Dutch X Mal (KNPV) can compete and title in Schutzhund. Wondering if they have to be AKC registered therefore "pure".

Dogs do not have to be registered, or even pure-bred to do Schutzhund - only the ability to do it counts. I started SchH with my mix from from the pound and even managed some minor titles on her.

What about any other sports that require AKC registration?

Sports that require AKC registration require AKC registration. Non-registered pure-breds can get a a type of limited registration that allows them to participate in activities and events other than conformation ( I think it's called a PAL number? - details are on the AKC website) - but your dog needs to be an obvious pure-bred to qualify for the PAL registration, but the dog needs to be neutered.

AKC has a program for mixed breeds as well. Look it up on their website. Dogs can participate in all but conformation

My trainer was telling me about someone who won national championships with a mutt from the pound.

Only thing a mixed breed can't do in IPO/SchH is compete at one of the breed championships (like the USCA nationals).

To compete in AKC events, a mixed breed dog has to have a Canine Partners Listing, which does require that they be altered. http://www.akc.org/dog-owners/canine-partners/

To compete in UKC events, they would need a Performance Listing, which does not require altering. http://res.ukcdogs.com/pdf/fo4adm.pdf

For ASCA events, they would need a Tracking Number, which does not require altering. http://www.asca.org/Portals/0/trackapp.pdf
