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.

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.
