State Titles Medallions

Competition is open to all Main, Limited, Associate and Sporting Register dogs and bitches in Novice, Open, Utility and Utility Dog Excellent classes.

The medallions are competed for over the three trials which constitute the NSW Obedience State Titles Weekend, which encompasses the trial conducted by Eastern Suburbs Dog Training Club held on Saturday 5th October 2019 , the trial conducted by Penrith Kennel and Obedience Club held on Sunday 6th October 2019 and the NSW Obedience State Titles held on Monday 7th October 2019.

Handlers must enter each trial to be eligible.

Handlers must obtain a qualifying score in the NSW Obedience State Titles and must obtain a qualifying score in at least one of the other two trials to be eligible.

Prizes will be a gold medallion for first, a silver medallion for second and a bronze medallion for third.

Placing points are computed as follows:

1 point for a first place
2 points for a second place
3 points for a third place
4 points for a fourth place
5 points for a fifth place
and so on

The total aggregate placing points will be calculated from the points at the NSW Obedience State Titles and the higher placing from the other two trials.

The three best total aggregate placing points will receive a State Title medallion.

In the event of a tied aggregate points (two dogs on the same computed points):

The dog with the highest placing from the NSW Obedience State Titles will be declared a winner.
