2021 Merit Awards

It's that time of year again!  Although Covid-19 is still a dominant presence in our lives, many of us have had opportunities to exhibit our dogs this past year.  I encourage everyone who has gotten a new title to complete the merit award form.  This could even be a Farm Dog certificate or a Trick Dog title. 

If your dog has not gotten another title, but has received points or qualifying runs in obedience, rally, agility, barn hunt, or tracking, I also encourage you to enter your dog in the top dog competition. Even a single qualifying run in tracking may earn you the Top Dog award in this event if there are no other entries.

Please review the Merit Guidelines and the Top Dog Guidelines and complete the 2021 Merit Award Form.  Completed forms and information need to be mailed, emailed, or texted to Michelle Kutzler no later than November 1st - contact information in the 2021 Merit Award Form.
