Purina Top Open Shooting Dog Awards Standings

By Mike Luebke | Nov 04, 2019

Reporting  results of completed points stakes this year is lacking.

Purina Top “Shooting Dog” results need to get sent to me at in order to get counted for Purina Points.

Trials I “believe” have finished but I don’t have results include: Montana Shooting Dog Championship, All-America Shooting Dog Championship, National Pheasant Shooting Dog Championship, National Prairie Chicken Shooting Dog  Championship I’m sure there are others. Both Open,  and Amateur, as well as Derby.

There is a 35-day time limit to get trials reported!

Why is there a time-limit on recording? So results (points standings) are relevant and close to actual. Handlers and owners then have a decent picture where they stand, and receive due recognition.

Trial officials are responsible to get these and any other completed trials reported to me.

Regarding the Purina Shooting Dog Handler points change. In the Purina Handler of the Year Award ad (issue of August 17), the All-Age Handler scoring was given, but the Shooting Dog Handler scoring was not.

The Shooting Dog Handler Award is a two-tier scoring system. Shooting dog handler scoring is calculated as follows:

For three one-hour continuous course trials: 1st place earns 5 points per dogs drawn; 2d place earns 3 points per dogs drawn; 3d place earns 2 points per dogs drawn.

Single course trials: 1st place earns 3 points per dogs drawn; 2d place earns 2 points per dogs drawn; 3d place earns 1 point per dogs drawn.

Good trialing.
