Level 1 - 3 Qualifying Competitions

IJA conducts Level 1 - 3 qualifying competitions to score and rank competitors for IJA Sanctioned Level 4 Competitions. To create the most professional arena in IJA Sanctioned Qualifying Competitions, and to allow everyone to be recognized and considered equal, logos on grooming attire, table covers, tool kits, etc. are permitted and encouraged to promote the individual or the individual's business (salon, mobile, kennel, day care).

 

The competitor, or the business of the competitor or the business where the competitor works, is typically responsible for paying for uniforms, entry fees and overall expenses and should be allowed to promote their business. For example, a salon team may compete wearing the same uniform with a salon name and logo.

 

IJA recognizes and presents the John Nash Professionalism Award to encourage full competition uniforms to create the most professional appearance in the contest arena and in our industry.

 

Level 4 competition uniforms and logos are prohibited in Level 1 -3 Qualifying Competition.

Competitions are designed for competitors who have qualified in Level 1 - 3 competitions and have earned a place on a Level 4 team or as a Level 4 individual competitor to compete in international competitions for a specific event or time frame.

 

Level 4 teams and individual competitors are typically sponsored by pet industry companies and it is their responsibility to promote their sponsorships in the ring.

 

To create the ultimate professional image, Level 4 teams and individual competitors must be in a full uniform in the competition arena. No jeans allowed!.

 

Level 4 competition uniforms and logos are prohibited in Level 1 -3 Qualifying Competition.
