TOP DOG COMPETITION…… What is it? It is a year long
competition beginning with the January Fun Show. At each fun
show throughout the year points will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd
places and for Best Puppy, Best of Opposite and Best of Show.
Points are accumulated from January – November which the Top
Dog Award and Top Dog Runner-Up Award being presented at the
Mid Florida Christmas Party. This is just a little club competition
where we can recognize the nicest dog who regularly participates in
our fun shows. It gives each of us an incentive to work with and
condition our dogs….thus spending more time bonding with them.
You have fun and your dog stays in shape!
In order for dogs to be eligible to win he/she must participate in at
least six (6) out of eleven (11) fun shows. Your dog need not be
registered with the American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA) to
participate, however our conformation fun shows are judged
according to the ADBA conformation standard. We pride ourselves
with guest judges each and every month who know and understand
the ADBA conformation standard. They may be retired ADBA
judges, have personal experience in the show ring, or they may be
established breeders of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
Our fun shows are about just that….FUN! Our Top Dog Contest is
about good-hearted fun and good sportsmanship. You win a simple
but nice award and get the honor of going in the record books as
Mid Florida’s Top Dog winner or runner-up.

3rd place 1 point
2nd place 2 points
1st place 3 points

Our first Top Dog Contest was back in 2004 and was won Lil Big Up
owned by Reid Hutches. The contest took a hiatus until 2007 when
it was won by Draco owned by Eva Noble and the runner-up award
went to Jaeger owned by Carla Thomas. In 2008 the Top Dog award
went to Maverick owned by Lisa Hutches and runner-up went to
Draco owned by Eva Noble.
