Top Scoring German Shepherd Dogs

The 2011 Top Scoring German Shepherd Dog

Article written by Dalene McIntire...

2011TGSDThe Top Scoring German Shepherd Dog award has been presented for four years now and is awarded each year for the previous year—we can’t get the information needed until after the end of each year – to the GSD who earns the most points for their scores in the regular classes (Novice, Open, and Utility) at AKC all-breed and specialty shows/trials.

Interestingly enough, this year’s winner was in fourth place last year for the 2010 award and in fifth place for the 2009 Award.  And even more interesting, she was the 2009 Obedience Victrix at the National in Ohio that year.  This definitely shows a consistency for high scores over this three-year span.

The name of the winner this year is Obedience Trial Champion, Obedience Victrix Zita vom Krummenhager See, UDX4, OM5 RN, owned by Shannon Shepherd.  Shannon and Zita reside in Florida so aren’t planning to make it to the 2012 National to accept their award this year (it will be mailed to Shannon).  Another note:  When Zita won the Obedience Victrix title in 2009, she had just completed her Utility title three weeks before that National.   read more . . .
