New Club Information

Welcome to the U. S. Complete Shooting Dog Association

The U. S. Complete is a walking shooting dog association recognized and sanctioned by the American Field. We offer an Open and Amateur National Championship, an Amateur Invitational Championship, Open Regional Championships, Futurity, Classics and many weekend trials. An Organization you can be proud to associate with.

Family-oriented is the way we do things – you will feel comfortable bringing your entire family to any U.S. Complete event. Many field trials promote youth participation with special youth stakes. We encourage having a gallery wagon at all trials.

The U. S. Complete honors the top dogs in all categories (Open/Amateur, Puppy, Derby and Shooting Dog).  These top dogs, owners and handlers are honored each year at our annual banquet and with our annual awards page in the American Field.

We are looking for handlers like you to participate and sponsor an association trial. Let the U.S. Complete help you attract good handlers and dogs to your trial.

We would like to hear from you! Please leave us a comment, message or contact the one of the National Officers or your Regional President.

 Are you interested in running a U. S. Complete sanctioned field trial?

We are always looking for new clubs to join us in hosting and promoting the great sport of field trialing!  There is no annual fee to be a member club.  A fee of $3 per dog drawn is to be paid.

Please follow the guidelines below to conduct a U.S. Complete sanctioned field trial.
