The annual CHIC/Parent Club Champion of Health Award is intended to recognize any French bulldog that has had significant accomplishments in the ring, in the field, in companion/performance events, as a producer, or as a working dog, AND has the full complement of health testing appropriate for its breed. The dog need not be owned or bred by a member of the FBDCA.
The award consists of an engraved silver medallion, and a $100 donation to the AKC Canine Health Foundation breed specific donor advised fund in the name of the honored dog. The award will be announced and given at the club’s annual awards banquet. To nominate a French bulldog please e-mail or snail mail the dog’s AKC name and CHIC identification number and the name of the dog’s owner(s) with a brief description of the dog’s accomplishments as well as its health certifications to:

As health testing is the number one priority to receive the award, the FBDCA Health and Genetics Committee will choose 3 nominees. The three nominees will be submitted to the board of the FBDCA for approval and sent to the Orthopedic Foundation of America, where the award winner is determined. If a nominated dog is owned or co-owned by a member of the Health and Genetics Committee or a member of the Board that person must recluse herself/himself from the rest of the selection process.
THE DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS IS JULY 31st.
