American Field

Purina Dog of the Year Award

Mar 05, 2019

As this issue reaches readers, the 2018-2019 season is heading into the final chapters.

There are still several Purina points stakes on the schedule — the Kentucky, Missouri and All-America Championships, to name three.

The National Championship winner, Dunn’s Tried’n, True, not only earned points based on the 34-dog entry, but also bonus points awarded to the winner of the Grand Junction classic, enhancing his points total significantly.

The Purina Awards winners will be fittingly recognized the weekend of June 21-22 in Nashville, Tenn.
