Where can I compete?

Anywhere! You can compete at any UK based show, held under any established UK rulebook (eg. UK Hoopers, Hooperholics, Canine Hoopers UK etc). The only requirement is that the class was open for entry to all (ie not a private event, invitational, finals etc) and was a standard class for progressions (not a special class such as pairs etc). 

How do I record my points?

You can choose to record your results any way you like, however we will need to know the Show name and date plus the class and your result. We recommend either using a UK Hoopers Record of Achievement Book or keeping an up to date spreadsheet. If you have entered the UK Hoopers National Online Leagues, see below for more info

I’ve entered the National Online Leagues too – what does this mean for my Hoopers Title Awards?

Great news! If you’re entered in the UK Hoopers National Online Leagues you only need to add your results into the leagues! We will use your points tally towards your Hoopers Title Awards, just keep an eye on your points total as you go along and let us know when you have hit the target and we’ll do the rest! If you haven;t signed up yet, don’t worry, you can do this at any time before the leagues close and enter all of your results for that year.

Which results count?

You earn points for any placings in any standard progression class (not specials or invite only classes) where an award was presented. This includes placings with faults (but not eliminations). Also any clear round which was unplaced or outside of the placings. Eg. If you came 10th in a class with a clear round but the placings only went to 6th, you will still get points for you clear round. Or, if you had faults in a class but you were still placed and received an award then this counts too.

When can I claim my dog’s award?

You can claim your award at any time once they have reached the required number of points. Any results since 1st April 2019 are eligible for inclusion (subject to guidelines). Your points tally does not reset, it remains intact and instantly counts towards the next award level.

How do we earn points?

You earn points for each successful competition round. A placed run is any result from which you received a usual award E.g. 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc and received a rosette, trophy, award card or similar. You may claim points for any placed run, including those with faults but excluding eliminations (or the equivalent of). If you did not receive an award but ran a clear round, this is classed as an unplaced clear round and you will receive points for these too. 

Are there any non competive ways to earn points?

Yes! UK Hoopers HooperStar Challenge Awards are a fantastic way to test your skills in a non competitive way, you can learn more about them here. Plus there are a range of skill based progress awards available under other rule books. Completing these awards is an achievement in its own right and so each one is worth a massive 25 points towards your Hoopers Title Award! Yes…that’s the equivalent of a 1st place in competition! So make sure you count your UK Hoopers HooperStar Challenge Awards Levels 1-10, CHW Progress Awards Levels 1-10 or CHUK GHA Bronze to Platinum (not online).
