ISCA Versatility Certificate Program

 

   

The primary objective of the Irish Setter Club of America, Inc (ISCA) Versatility Program is to demonstrate the Irish Setter’s hunting ability, reasonable obedience to the handler’s commands and to determine whether the overall breeding adheres to the Irish Setter Standard. Dog shows give the breeder an opportunity to demonstrate the progress made in breeding type and quality as outlined in the Standard. Companion events demonstrate the usefulness of the purebred dog as a companion to mankind. Field events are a demonstration of a sporting dog's ability to hunt in his natural environment, proving his natural instincts.

The Versatility Certificate program is a combined exhibition of breed, obedience and field leading to the development of the full potential of the breed as outlined in the breed ring, the obedience trial, the field trial and certified in the AKC Standard.
