USACTC will utilize the statistics and effective date employed by The Canine Chronicle to calculate points earned. You must be a USACTC member in good standing beginning January 1st 2017 or your points will begin from date of membership approval. Points may be earned at any licensed AKC sponsored event.
2016 statistics were from Dog News. **
The board went with Dog News for statistics since this publication included Reserve Best in Show. The Canine Chronicle and AKC statistics do not include Reserve Best in Show. It was announced on Facebook that Dog News went out of business. Shortly afterwards Dog News announced they were back in business and will have a publication. The board always agreed on Dog News for 2016, but going forward statistics will be from the Canine Chronicle as they are the most reliable source.
Lopatin Award Trophy has been retired. The Bronze Coton Award purchased by the club will take the place of this award. Many thanks to Susan Levine and all the past winners of this award.
