Purina Top Performance Award

Dogs must have at least 20 open points from June 1 through May 31 for the applicable year to be eligible. Weekend trials only. From there, the award will be based on national trials and regional eliminations. 

The Performance Trial will be the beginning national trial each year, even if it ends prior to June 1st in order to keep the number of nationals the same each year.

The Regional Elimination trial will be based on regularly scheduled regionals for each year and only one regional can count per year. Regionals scheduled or rescheduled to be held after June 1 will apply to the previous year.

For National trials, a dog must make the Saturday cut to receive a qualifying score. Each national trial will have a point value of 800 points. The value will drop 25 points per placement throughout the Saturday cut (1st – 800, 2nd – 775, 3rd – 750, etc.). In addition, 100 bonus points will be awarded to the Champion, 75 for the second place dog, 50 for third and 24 for fourth. *

 Each Regional Elimination will have a point value of 600 points. The value will drop 25 points per placement until the last dog or points run out (1st – 600, 2nd – 575, 3rd – 550, etc.). In addition, 100 points will be awarded to the Champion, 75 for the second place dog, 50 for third and 25 for fourth. **

The placement for Regional Eliminations and National Trials is determined by the score of the last round in which the dog ran.

*This change makes each National Trial count the same amount as per the regions’ request. It also allows points to be given to each dog in the Saturday morning cut as per the original suggested format. It will weigh the two trials that take 32 to Saturday with a greater percent for mid-range dogs but those are the trials that a dog must make an extra cut on Saturday so it is relevant. It also weighs the final fours more.

** This change makes each regional count the same so larger regions will not receive an advantage.
