The DPCC is pleased to honour our members accomplishments in conformation, performance and breeding.
The award year runs from January 1 to December 31.
A Doberman competing in the awards program must have been owned by a DPCC member in good standing during the period of competition (award year) being considered. The owner must have also been a member in good standing with the DPCC by March 31st of the Awards year in question. (example, to qualify for a 2019 Award – Membership must have been approved and paid for on or before March 31st 2019.)
Only members are eligible to receive awards. The Awards Committee will verify the membership status of applicants and the achievement reported.
All DPCC Awards are to be applied for on-line. We will not accept faxed or emailed applications this year. This is to limit human error in compiling the data.
Awards can result in a tie if multiple candidates hold the same accomplishments, scores, points etc.
Changes for 2021 Awards
Several awards require the applicant to earn all 3 qualifying title scores in one calendar year (example RE dog of the year). For THIS AWARD YEAR ONLY you are eligible to apply if you earned a qualifying leg in both 2020 and 2021.
This will also apply towards Performance Sire/Dam of the Year and Performance Breeder of the Year. Eligible offspring for this award may have earned performance titles in both 2020 and 2021.
Conformation Sire/Dam Of The Year – THIS AWARD YEAR ONLY offspring may have earned a championship in 2020 and 2021.
Conformation Breeder Of The Year – THIS AWARD YEAR ONLY offspring may have earned a championship in 2020 and 2021.
These changes were approved by the board as the pandemic brought an abrupt end to competitions in 2020.
Questions can be forwarded to our Awards Chair.
