  • Uniformed Service K-9 (Dogs certified to help law enforcement, military or firefighting personnel in their work)
  • Search & Rescue Dog (Dogs certified to assist in wilderness and urban tracking, natural disasters, mass casualty events and locating missing people)
  • Therapy Dog (Dogs certified to provide affection and comfort to those in need)
  • Service Dog (Dogs certified to help those with disabilities)
  • Exemplary Companion (Non-certified, household pet)

To qualify, the dog must have performed some exemplary act, whether large or seemingly small, that has significantly benefitted a community or individual. Dogs do not have to be AKC registered to be nominated. Anyone can nominate a dog however, if not nominated by the dog's owner, the owner will be contacted.  (read more)
