DOG OF THE YEAR AWARDS

The Lapphund Club of Finland awards several types of annual trophies to dogs owned by its members. Only shows, competitions and trials held in Finland count towards the points. Claims for the previous year's trophies must be submitted by the end of January each year. All categories are open to any of the three breeds except for the Show Dog/Bitch of the Year category, which has separate top-ten lists for all three breeds.

The categories are as follows:

  • Show Dog/Bitch of the Year (main focus on the results achieved in the breed ring)
  • The "Tähtipokaali" Award for the top-winning show dogs (main focus on BOB/BOS wins, group and BIS placements as well as Champion and Winner titles)
  • Puppy of the Year
  • Veteran of the Year
  • Breeder of the Year
  • Obedience Dog of the Year
  • Novice Obedience Dog of the Year
  • Working Trial Dog of the Year
  • Agility Dog of the Year
  • Junior Handler of the Year
