Agility Dog Club of NSW presents its awards at their annual Christmas Party.
Since 1992, the Agility Dog Club of NSW has run a club competition for its upper classes. Over the years it has evolved and changed to keep in line with ANKC rules.
As well as achknologing the overall winners we have had a variety of 'special' awards:
Keep Plugging Away Award is given to a team who might be trying to over come some difficulties in training as a reminder to never give up!
Gundog Snap Award is named after the gundog breeds (GSP's etc) as they are known to sometimes lose their mind on course and you never know what is going to happen. Therefore this award given to a team who do something that makes everyone laugh at a trial. Over the years we have seen it been awarded to dogs who refuse to come off obstacles, chase birds on course or even go under not over jumps just to name a few!
