AKC/Eukanuba National Championship Veterans Competition Judging Panel Released

The American Kennel Club® is pleased to announce the judging panel for a new Veterans competition to be held in conjunction with the 2014 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship (AENC) in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, December 13 and Sunday, December 14, 2014.

The Veterans Class will be open to all dogs and bitches seven years of age and older. A Best of Breed Veteran will be selected in each breed or variety. Veteran group judging will coincide with the Bred-By Exhibitor group judging on Saturday and Sunday afternoon with the Best Veteran in Show selected on Sunday evening.

“Eukanuba is proud to be part of this special event honoring senior dogs,” said Jason Taylor, Communications Director for Eukanuba and AENC Assistant Show Chairman. “We’re looking forward to celebrating these special dogs in many ways at this year’s show, and this competition will be the highlight.”

“There is a great tradition of applauding and cheering for our Veteran dogs when they return to the ring at dog shows, and we look forward to doing just that when they return to the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship blue carpet,” said Dennis Sprung, AENC Show Chairman and AKC President & CEO.

Mr. Roger Hartinger of Cincinnati, Ohio will judge Best Veteran in Show on Sunday evening, December 14. The winner will be awarded $500.

Judges for each of the seven Veteran groups are:

VETERAN SPORTING – Ms. Patricia Cruz – Coram, New York
VETERAN HOUND – Mr. Thomas Powers – Northridge, California
VETERAN WORKING – Dr. Carmen Battaglia – Roswell, Georgia
VETERAN TERRIER – Mr. David Kirkland – Sanford, North Carolina
VETERAN TOY – Mrs. Rita Holloway – Newark, Delaware
VETERAN NON-SPORTING – Dr. Charles Garvin – Marion, Ohio

The premium list for the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship will be available in September. Additional opportunities for veteran dogs to compete during the week of the AENC include three all-breed shows, 33 specialty shows, two group shows (Herding and Working), two FSS/Miscellaneous Open Shows and three obedience/rally trials.
