  • The eligible days for this award are: August 25, 26 and 27, 2017.
  • Only one qualifying score per discipline per dog during the 3 eligible days, will be accepted for use towards the MVV award.  For example, if a dog qualifies more than once in obedience over the 3 days, only his higher scores will be used for the MVV award.

  • In obedience, a qualifying score in the pre-novice class (which is pass/fail) will earn 50 points for the MVV award and for the other classes in obedience, the final score will be reported out of 100. For example: 190/200 = 95 points for the MVV award. 
  • In conformation, only the official classes are eligible for the MVV award.     (Refer to the scoreboard below)
  • In agility, the score must come with the mention “qualified score” to be eligible for the MVV award.
