The AKC National Owner-Handled Series recognizes and showcases the quality dogs being exhibited by owner/handlers and provides a venue for the owner/handlers to compete against their peers. The determination of the awards in the AKC National Owner-Handled Series is based solely on the quality of the entry. The owner/handler’s handling ability is not of consideration.
The end of year competition for the AKC National Owner-Handled Series will be held in conjunction with the AKC National Championship. Dogs that finished ranked in the top ten (plus ties) for their breed for the current qualifying period will be allowed to compete in the competition.
