Dog of the Year Competition

This is a friendly competition. The Rules are as follows:

A dog who has won an award which goes towards the title of “Champion” is not eligible for this competition (in the UK this means Challenge Certificate, aka “Ticket” or CC, in other countries this may have another name).

If, during the course of the year, your dog wins a CC, then that dog becomes ineligible for Dog of the Year and any of our Club Matches thereafter.

At each of our monthly matches, the dogs placed 1st in their class win 4 points, 2nd wins 2 points and 3rd 1 point

Dogs winning Best in Match gain 4 points, Reserve Best in Match gains 2 points.

The dog gaining most points throughout the year, becomes Dog of the Year for that Year

Pup of the Year Competition

The Pup of the Year has all their points from Puppy and Yearling added up over the year, and the puppy with most points is Pup of the Year.

Adult & Junior Handler of the Year

4 points for 1st in class, 2 points for 2nd in class and 1 point for 3rd in class.

These are added up over the year to find our Handler/Junior Handler of the Year

We are a Kennel Club Affiliated Club.

Dogs with Challenge Certificates or any award which goes towards the title of Champion, may not compete in our matches. However, all dogs (including Champions) are welcome to come and train on normal training nights.
