To stay in Ring III the dog must not receive two scores below 240 in the same year. Ring III's are rated as: Good 200- 240, Very Good 240-300, Excellent 300-400. To qualify for the Selectifs or pre-championships a dog must be a Ring III and make five trials in one season with an average score above 340 points for all five trials. To go to the "Coupe de France de Ring" or Championship trial the dog must go to three Selectif trials ( the decoys at these trials are very good and the work at these trials is usually VERY difficult as the Judges will often let the decoys "bend" the rules.) The scores from the three Selectifs are again averaged, and the 30 dogs with the highest average scores are allowed to go to the "Coupe". The "coupe" is judged by a "jury" of Judges and normally worked by only the best Decoys. The Champion of France in Ring is determined by averaging the scores from the "Coupe" and the three Selectifs trials.

French Ring is quite arguably the most difficult dog training sport in the world. It is extremely demanding of both the dog and training team. If a dog can excel in French Ring the dog can undoubtedly also excel in any of the other protection disciplines.
