NSCA Shiba Inu Versatile Shiba Inu

The NSCA Shiba Inu Versatile Shiba Inu is designed to recognize the Shiba Inu who has displayed versatility by titling in at least three different venues. This one time life-long achievement award may be earned by more than one Shiba Inu per year. The award will be presented at the Annual Awards Banquet at the NSCA National Specialty./p>

The award will be a plaque stating, “20__ NSCA Shiba Inu Versatile Shiba Inu (if AKC VCD titled, specific level will be specified), dog's name, owner’s name (as shown on AKC registration), breeder’s name, National Shiba Club of America. A picture of the Shiba Inu recipient and list of achievements will be printed in the Shiba E-News and posted on the NSCA Awards webpage.

Application period is May 1 through June 30, 2023. Application form may be obtained on the NSCA Awards webpage or through the Awards Committee Chairperson. All application materials may be submitted electronically or hard copy. Provide copies of official documentation with the application to verify authenticity. An incomplete application (including verification documentation) will not be processed.


  1. Any Shiba Inu achieving a Versatile Companion Dog (VCD) title is considered to have achieved the requirements for the Versatile Shiba Inu recognition. An award may be achieved by the same dog when achieving a higher VCD title (e.g. VCD2). Document level achieved.
    Document at least four titles achieved (Novice or above) achieved from the following: conformation, obedience, rally, tracking, agility (no more than 2), therapy dog, barn hunt, coursing ability, dock diving, flyball, FAST CAT, scent work, search and rescue, or trick dog.
    • Where a sport offers a “preferred” titling option of the same title (such as the preferred Agility class or preferred obedience) in addition to the regular titling track only one or the other (but not both) will count toward the versatility award.
    • Per the AKC Rules Applying to Dog Shows, a higher title will supersede previous titles, so only the higher title will be listed. For purposes of this award, where titles are earned in progression ( such as novice agility then open agility), only the highest level achieved will be counted.
    • Titles earned outside of AKC for which AKC has a title recognition program (such as Barn Hunt and trick dog) must be registered with AKC to be considered for this award.
    • For sports that offer multiple titling tracks (for example agility has standard, jumpers, fast, time 2 beat and premiere) a maximum of 2 titles will be counted toward this award
  2. Copy of AKC registration.
  3. Statement of NCSA membership of owner, by name. This will be verified by the Awards Committee.
