2022 Merit Awards

It's that time of year again!  I encourage everyone who has gotten a new title to complete the merit award form!  There are now nine! categories you can compete for Top Dog in - including the new category of Scent Work!  The year each category's Top Dog will receive a personalized embroidered grooming bag!

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, for example, may earn you the Top Dog award in this event if there are no other entries.  You'll never know unless you enter!  

Please review the Top Dog Guidelines  and complete the form within the Merit Award Guideline & Forms file The completed information needs to be mailed or emailed to Michelle Kutzler no later than November 1st - contact information and instructions are in the Top Dog Guidelines.
