2020 was a year like no other. Despite the many challenges competitors faced, from canceled events to redesigned ring procedures and trial protocols, we learned to adapt and rise to the challenge that the year presented – and to have a little bit of fun, safe competition when we could.
Join us and Top Dogs presenting sponsor Purina® Pro Plan® in congratulating the more than 2,000 competitors whose years of hard work and dedication were showcased in 2020 – whether they made it into the Top Dogs standings for the first or the tenth time.
