The Dog of the Year (DOTY) award is meant to recognize the achievements of a Canaan Dog that exemplifies the best of our breed to the Canaan Dog community and/or the general community of pure-bred dog fanciers, or the world at large. This award has gone to breed champions as well as to companion dogs and pets that have shown our breed in a positive light in the performance community.
The Member of the Year (MOTY) award goes to a person to recognize their work for the breed and/or the club either for outstanding work in that year or in recognition for many years of dedication to the club or breed.
To be eligible for DOTY, the dog must be owned/co-owned by a member in good standing of the CDCA and the names of sire and dam must be provided. For MOTY, the person must be a member in good standing of the CDCA.
Candidates for DOTY and MOTY are nominated by members of the club.
ATTENTION MEMBERS: REMEMBER! These are YOUR awards to give! Elections are only held if there is more than one nominee; otherwise the nominee will be voted upon and ratified by the Board of Directors.
