Owner Handler Awards

Owner Handler Awards

The Owner Handler Awards (OHA) and Junior Showmanship Owner Handler Awards (JSOHA) programs are to encourage PWDCA members to:

        • Actively participate in competitive events and activities by handling dogs owned or co-owned by them
        • Develop positive working relationships and camaraderie with their fellow club members and competitors
        • Continually expand their understanding of the PWD breed standard through “hands on” activities and experiences

Registered owner handler (non-professional) participants will earn program points for placements earned in conformation, agility, obedience, rally, therapy, CGC, water, and tracking events.

Throughout the program year, owner handler program rankings will be tracked and communicated via the program webpage, Facebook, email announcements, etc. At the PWDCA National Specialty, awards will be presented to the top five conformation owner handlers and the top five all around (all venues) owner handlers. 

Support of the Health & Litter Log

The Owner Handler Awards program committee fully supports the PWDCA's Code of Ethics that encourages (not mandates) members to support the use of the PWD Health & Litter Log. As such, the Owner Handler Awards program has established a process specifically developed to encourage and support program participant use of the PWD Health & Litter Log.
