END OF YEAR AWARDS

The end of year awards and title rosettes are presented at the Club's Christmas Party and Award Presentation Day

Each year the club awards title rosettes to dogs which have gained a title during the year for any dog sport supported by the club.  The conditions for receiving a title rosette are set out below.

The award for Club Dog of the Year in each discipline is awarded to the dog which has performed most consistently in the elected discipline over the year.  The awards are determined according to a points system - they are not necessarily awarded to the dog which achieves the highest title.
