The Gun Dog Hall of Fame

In an effort to recognize the unique relationship between upland game hunters and their dogs, NAGDA has established the Gun Dog Hall of Fame.  To qualify for a nomination, the dog and its owner or family must have participated for five years in the NAGDA National Finals events.  In those five years, they must have finished in the Top 5 at least three times.  The nomination is limited to one application per year per membership or family. A maximum of 5 dogs will be inducted into the Hall of Fame each year. The induction ceremony will be at the Nationals Banquet each Spring, where the dog owner(s) will be presented with a plaque honoring their dog's years of service.
