Versatile Dog Award
The award is presented to the BTCA member in good standing whose
Bedlington Terrier earns titles in three (3) of the eight (8) available AKC events. In the case of coownership at least one owner must be a current member in good standing of the BTCA. In the case of multiple ownership, the award plaque will be presented to the person who is listed first on the dog's AKC registration papers who is a current member in good standing of the BTCA. The same dog can only win this award once. In the event that some of the titles were earned prior to the owner becoming a member, the most recent title must have been earned after the owner became a BTCA club member. To receive the award, the owner must contact the BTCA awards chairperson by August 1 of any given calendar year with the following information:
- Names of the titles earned
- Dates and location of qualifying legs earned for performance and companion titles
