UpDog Freestyle Showcase consists of 2 rounds of Freestyle, a Criterion Round and the Performance Round.
The Criterion Round is focused on disc dog skills and competitive performance. Dog, Handler, and Team are evaluated using recognized, tangible subcategories.
The Performance Round is a show. While still dependent upon high quality disc dog skills, the Performance Round is looking for something more, something special: perform to the crowd, wear a costume, theme your routine, break out some amazing featured tricks.
