    Yes, RE is Rally Excellent.

    ASCA--Australian Sheepdog Club of America

    The rest I believe are different agility titles.

    so what is the ASCA- austarlian sheepdog Club of America, what is the purpose of this title> is it a herding test title or just the intials for the club, but why would this be on a dog name?

    ASCA offers agility and (I think) obedience titles, so the initials are there to identify the forum.. just as a U-CD is a CD awarded at a UKC trial. Probably the agility titles following the ASCA are all earned there.

    Yes, ASCA also offers obedience titles. Here's a link to some title abbreviations. In the AKC, JH is Junior Hunter. I wonder if JH-E is Junior Hunter for another registry?

    The Astralian Shepherd Club of America is a breed specific club for Aussies. They also allow other breeds to be registered and compete for obedience and agility titles.

    I just found website yesterday: http://www.myheartaussies.com/AlphabetSoup.html

    NFP
    GS-N
    RS-N
    NG-C
    TG-N Novice Touch N Go Certificate
    TN-N Novice Tunnelers Certificate
    NAC Novice Agility Certificate
    NJ-C Novice Jumpers Certificate (NJC)
    PS1 Performance Standard I
    JH-E


    I'm wondering if GS-N is Starters Gambler (SG) and the N is for Novice?

    HAHAHA...I recognize those since they are Murray's titles. ;D


    RE - AKC Rally Excellent
    NJP - AKC Novice Jumpers Preferred
    NAP - AKC Novice Agility Preferred
    NFP - AKC Novice FAST Preferred which is now OFP Open FAST Preferred
    ASCA CDX - Australian Shepherd Club CDX (same rules as the AKC CDX)
    GS-N - ASCA Gamblers Novice (now called Chances)
    RS-N - ASCA Regular Novice
    NG-C - NADAC (North American Dog Agility Council) Gamblers Novice (now called Chances)
    TG-N - NADAC Touch n Go Novice
    TN-N - NADAC Tunnelers Novice
    NAC - NADAC Novice Agility
    NJ-C - NADAC Novice Jumpers
    PS1 - USDAA (United Stated Dog Agility) Performance Standard I (their version of Novice)
    JH-E - USDAA Jr Handler Elementary Agility (4 levels of JH titles Beginner, Elementary, Intermediate, Sr) This is the title my daughter earned with Murray

    All of the agility clubs have different games so that's why his name looks like alphabet soup. I grouped the titles by org. I put ASCA in front of the CDX to clarify that he has an AKC CDX and an ASCA CDX since the title name is identical. All of the other titles are unique to the org so I didn't put NADAC or USDAA in front of them.

    ASCA is Australian Shepherd (not Sheep Dog) Club of America. The Aussies broke away from AKC a few years ago and created their own registry which includes conformation, obedience, agility, herding, and eventually rally. There is a lot of bad blood there so the ASCA club frowns on anyone who has an ASCA registered Aussie that competes in AKC conformation. Thankfully the other sports are all breed so it doesn't matter.

    His official AKC name would only be Clear Creek's Mad About You CDX RE NJP NAP OFP
    His official ASCA name would only be Clear Creek's Mad About You CDX GS-N RS-N
    His official NADAC name would only be Clear Creek's Mad About You NG-C, TG-N, TN-N, NAC, NJ-C
    His official USDAA name would only be Clear Creek's Mad About You PS1, JH-E

    Does that help clarify?

    Well, since I have a few friends who breed Aussies and are very active in ASCA and AKC, I will tell you that this is not completely true. I see people who I used to see at ASCA events showing their Aussies at AKC events all the time.

    I have judged obedience at an ASCA event. It was fun. I have also earned ASCA titles in obedience as well.

    Reread what I wrote. I'm pretty sure I didn't say they "couldn't" show in AKC I said it was frowned upon and they will be austersized by the ASCA club. I have friends who breed Aussies and they won't even show in AKC obedience for fear of repercussions.
