AKC National Owner-Handled Series Expanded to Specialty and Group Clubs

Hosted exclusively by All-Breed clubs during the first two years of its existence, the American Kennel Club® (AKC®) National Owner-Handled Series (NOHS) has now been opened to local and national Specialty clubs as well as Group clubs.

“After Specialty clubs saw the success All-Breed clubs had with the NOHS at their events, we received inquiries from many different breed clubs interested in taking part. We’re pleased to be able to fulfill the requests by expanding the program,” said Alan Slay, AKC Director of Event Programs. “For Specialty clubs just now considering the NOHS, it’s very easy to add the competition to your event, even if your club is already hosting special attractions like Best Puppy, Best Bred-By Exhibitor or Best Veteran.”

The expansion to specialty and group clubs will allow owner-handlers additional opportunities to compete for year-end points and rankings. The top ten owner-handled dogs (plus ties) in each breed in the 2014 qualifying year will be invited to compete in the National-Owner Handled Series Final, scheduled to be held in conjunction with the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship on December 12, 2014 in Orlando, Florida. In the inaugural Finals last year, more than 520 competitors entered, representing 160 breeds and 43 states and Canada.

National Owner-Handled Series Best in Show results can also now be viewed in the Weekly Wins section of the AKC website.

Specialty or Group clubs interested in offering this competition can indicate it on their event application or email eventplans@akc.org. Owner-handlers can find a local event offering the NOHS here.
