   Highest Scoring Combined Breed Champions and Performance Titled

  1. MGRC members must apply for this award each year.
  2. Points are awarded for the highest achievements in each area:  Conformation and Performance.
  3. The Conformation area includes accomplishments in the Breed ring or CCA tests.  The Performance area is comprised of titles in the Obedience (including Rally), Agility and Tracking categories.
  4. The dog must have at least 1 point in each area to be eligible:  Conformation and Performance
  5. The award will be given to the dog with the most points achieved that year.
  6. Points within a category are not cumulative (only the highest point title is recognized).

 

Example of scoring:  Dog has a CH title and a CD.  Using the grid below, the dog would have a total of 14 points that year.  The next year the dog has achieved a CDX title in Obedience, the new point total would be 15 (9 for CH and 6 for CDX).  Also the dog is eligible to win this award because it achieved a new title with the CDX.

 

  •    Highest Scoring Versatility Dog - The Maine Golden Retriever Club holds in highest esteem the versatility of those Golden Retrievers who reflect both the conformation and working attributes of the breed.

 

  1. MGRC members must apply for this award each year.
  2. Points are awarded for the highest achievements in each area:  Conformation, Performance and Field.
  3. There are a total of six different categories within the three areas.  The Conformation area  includes accomplishments in the Breed ring or CCA tests.  The Performance area is comprised of titles in the Obedience (including Rally), Agility and Tracking categories.  The Field consists of both Hunt Tests and Field Trial accomplishments.
  4. The dog must have at least 1 point in each area:  Conformation, Performance and Field.
  5. The award will be given to the dog with the most points achieved that year.
  6. Points within a category are not cumulative (only the highest point title is recognized).

Example of scoring:  Dog has Minor Points in Conformation (2pts), a RE in Performance (3pts), and a JH in Field (5pts) for a total of 10 points.  If this dog is the highest scoring dog in the club that year, it would be awarded the Versatility trophy.  The next year, this same dog gets its TD in Tracking.  Since the points for this title in Performance are higher than the RE for Obedience, the points for Performance would change from 3 to 5, giving the dog an overall score of 12 for the following year.
