Regular to Preferred Crossover

From the AKC

"Effective January 1, 2013, an exhibitor may show their dog in a preferred class that is equal to or less than where their dog is currently showing in the equivalent regular classes. As such, a MACH dog may initially enter Master Preferred level STD/JWW classes, skipping the lower Excellent, Open, and Novice preferred levels.

 Once we see a dog qualify in preferred on/after January 1, that will become the dog’s ‘starting point’ for preferred. As such, if a MACH dog qualifies in Novice Preferred on/after January 1, 2013, then the dog must complete the Novice, Open, and Excellent level classes before being eligible to enter Master preferred.

There are many other class variations, but those are the basics.

This is a ONE-TIME cross over allowance – based on the first qualifying preferred class entry AKC processes on/after January 1, 2013.

 No legs/Qs or points cross over from regular to preferred.

 Each class (i.e. Standard, JWW, FAST, T2B) have their own, separate one-time cross over allowance.

The cross over does not work 'backwards' from preferred to regular."
