USRC Rottweiler Sieger Shows
What is a Rottweiler Sieger Show?
A Sieger Show is a German-Style Conformation Show. Rottweilers are exhibited in a natural state, no hand-stacking is permitted as is seen in the AKC show ring. Dogs are baited with toys from outside of the ring by a second handler. Each dog is individually critiqued aloud by the judge and given a rating in regards to how the dog conforms to the breed standard and the judge's critique is recorded in writing and given to the exhibitor. After every dog in the class has been critiqued, the dogs will run so that the judge can evaluate their movement and fitness. Handlers can be changed as often as needed. When the judge is satisfied that they have been able to evaluate all the dogs in the ring against each other, the judge will award 1st through 4th placements.

The National Youth Sieger and Siegerin, Regional Youth Sieger and Siegerin or Select Youth Male and Female are selected from the youth class winners.
