North American Gun Dog Association
Dog of the Year
Every Spring, NAGDA hosts its three-day National Competition.
Only the best individual score of the dog from its best qualifying run prior to Nationals and the best score of the dog for each day of the Nationals regardless of Division will be used. ( if the Doubles score is used, it will be cut in half). These scores must come from the same membership. All of these scores will be added together and the dog with the highest aggregate point total will be Dog of the Year. Only one score per day will be used. In the event there is a tie of total scores, the first tie breaker will be each dog’s total time from the run used on the third day, with the quickest time being the winner. If still tied, the second tie breaker will be the time of the first bird bagged by each dog from the run used on the third day.
Only scores from 1 membership will be eligible to be used. (Individual, Youth, Couple, or Family membership)
Example: If both a husband and a wife run a dog and they have a couples membership, the best of the two scores on a particular day will count for the dog. For a Family membership, the best of the three scores on a particular day will count for the dog. With an Individual membership, only the scores from that membership will count. For two different memberships running the same dog, each member's scores will be counted separately and not combined with each other.
