Chuck Ringering, a professional Machinist by trade, is hand-crafting ACCURATE & RUGGED WICKETS and we are offer them for an extremely reasonable price!
If you own a breed who has size DQs, it is a good idea to know the exact height of your dog. You never know when a judge will decide to wicket your show dog!
You should also be prepared for an exhibitor to “call a wicket” on your dog. Even if your dog will obviously measure in, that does not mean an exhibitor will not call a wicket on your dog. AKC dog show rules are very specific on how a judge wickets a dog. Judges are allowed one time (and only one time) to wicket a dog. Many dogs object to the wicket being swung over their backs. If your dog does not stand for being measured, the judge has to excuse the dog as being “unable to measure.” Your competition may just try to eliminate you that way… bad sportsmanship… but it can, and does, happen!
Make sure you are prepared by having your own wicket at home, in advance for practice.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Be prepared, and order yours now!

Chuck commissioned to create official measuring Wicket for Guinness Book of World Records!
Show Dog Wickets are not easy to find, but now, Chuck’s amazing skills as a professional Machinist are becoming internationally known.
He was chosen to create an official SHOW DOG WICKET to measure the “World’s Shortest Cat” for the Guinness Book of World Records.
On Friday, March 28, 2014, Cye, a Munchkin cat in Kitchener, Toronto, Ontario was named the shortest cat in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Chuck’s custom hand-crafted Show Dog Wicket was THE wicket used to measure the cat and make it official!
