The American Bulldog Club holds shows in association with Irondog testing the Bulldogs 5 most important attributes.

1) Intelligence and Tractability demonstrated in the "Obedience Event".

2) Stamina in "The Long Run" .

3) Structure, Movement and Temperament  "Exhibition" .

4) Speed for the catch via "The Sprint".

and last but not least

5) Loyalty and Bravery "The Courage Test".

The Courage Test is replaceable for Sporting Bulldog Champions (SPch) and Family  Champions (Fch) by "Weight Pull" and  "Sociability Performance and Tricks" respectively.  And last but not least we also have the category of Peoples Champion (Pch) for entry level competitions in regional areas.  Which signifies the best Bulldog on the day.

     It should be noted that a Bulldog does not have to bite in to pass The Courage Test for a Junior Champion.  It only has to move forward to protect the owner and defend him/her.
