Multi-Titlist Awards

Each year, dogs will be awarded a recognition certificate for earning two or more AKC or ESSFTA titles within an award year. Additionally, a dog will also be awarded a metal medallion for earning titles in three or more qualifying event areas. Only titles earned within an award year will count. The qualifying event areas are: Agility, Breed, Field Trials, Hunt Tests, Obedience, Rally, Tracking, Working Dog Tests, Coursing Ability, Therapy Dog, Canine Good Citizen, Tricks, Search & Rescue, Dock Diving, Barn Hunt, and Flyball.

The following criteria applies:
  1. Only titles earned while an ESSFTA member in good standing will be considered. Application for membership does not constitute membership (please note that there may be a waiting period of up to ninety days to complete the application process).
  2. If the dog is owned by more than one individual, ALL individuals must be members of the ESSFTA for at least six months prior to the end of the award year.
  3. The award year is the calendar year, i.e., January 1 through December 31.
  4. Unless specifically noted, the National Awards Committee will verify titles with AKC records and notify winners directly.
  5. Any disputes with respect to interpretation or application of the rules will be referred to the Board of Governors for resolution. The Board’s decision will be final.
