Applying for a Versatility Award
It is the responsibility of the owner of an
eligible dog to apply for either the versatility award or the
versatility excellent award. The application should include
copies of the dogs CKC registration certificate, and the latest
CKC certificate reflecting all the necessary titles. In the
case of a dog that has conformation points but not a
Championship, a copy of the record of the 1-point or better win
as it appears in the CKC publication must be provided.
The application information should be sent
to the PCOC Versatility Cordinator at least 6 weeks prior to the PCOC National Specialty Show to provide adequate time to prepare
the awards for presentation. If it is likely that the dog will
complete the requirements for the award at the national
specialty, the application information should still be sent at
least 6 weeks in advance, with an explanatory note about the
missing title(s). This will allow for the award to be available
for presentation if the requirements are completed before the
PCOC versatility awards presentation.
Application information should be sent to
the National Specialty Show Committee. But the application
itself should be sent to our VA Program Coordinator, as
Here to obtain an Application for the Versatility Award.
