About the Lifetime Achievement Awards for Dogs:
Purpose: Lifetime Achievement Awards are intended to honor FBDCA member-owned dogs who have achieved significant distinction in an AKC recognized activity other than
conformation. A dog many only earn one of these awards once, and the award is given for
extraordinary lifetime achievement.
Application & Award: The Lifetime Achievement Awards will not necessarily be given
yearly. Members who believe there is a dog worthy of such an award may nominate their
own dog or any dog owned by another member in writing no late than the deadline set yearly by the Honors & Awards Committee of any calendar year for award at that year’s FBDCA Awards Banquet. Awards will only be given upon a recommendation of a majority of the Honors & Awards Committee with approval by the FBDCA Board. The deadline to
nominate any dog for a lifetime achievement award for 2014 is July 31, 2014. Please submit your nomination to the FBDCA Honors & Awards Committee Chair, Allen Weinberg, at a.g.weinberg[at]gmail[dot]com before the annual deadline.
