Obedience Dog of the Year Award

Qualifications

Wheaten with the highest average obedience score at AKC shows during the show calendar year as verified in American Kennel Club Awards. A minimum of three qualifying scores is needed and all scores are averaged. The obedience classes in which the scores were earned are limited to Novice, Open or Utility.

Owner, or one of the co-owners, must be a member of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of America, Inc. (SCWTCA). If the Wheaten with the highest average score is not a member of the SCWTCA, the award goes to the Wheaten with the highest average score whose owner is a member of the SCWTCA.
