New handler made a mistake on EE? It is a junker of an antique website. I recently signed up my future show dog Terrier on a show dog entry service. Took me less than 5 minutes, I added my pro handler as an account user and he entered her in dog shows the next day. It was a refreshing change of an entry website.

Well, I don't know the top 20-25 dogs because I only know a handful of the dogs running. But one way to look at it is "total AA points" by the entrants. I sorted the below chart by total all-age points.

Obviously age plays a factor into total AA points but I still thought this was a fun way to look at the entries. Sorted this way, of the top 25 dogs, most dogs are 8+ and there are 4 dogs that are 6 years old and one dog that is 5.5 years old. Just thought it was interesting to look at. Enjoy.

A good start, now see how many of those have been Natl Am finalists or Open finalists with an Amateur handler.

dog 11 --- a finalist at both and also completely amateur handled and trained (well, he does train with Wayne Curtis, so there is that! LOL!!) Not sure of others, I only know about his stats because I have used him twice as a stud dog.

hmmm, that would be fun to know but not sure I could find all that info accurately. At least not in a timely manner.

Off the top of my head I know some of the 2022 NARC handlers are previous winners and/or finalists of a National Open or National AM (some people are multiple time finalists). See below of winners and known finalists...I don't know all of the people entered and their records in National Events, so my apologies if I missed someone, it is not intentional...

Delma Hazzard - 1981 NARC win
Alex Washburn 2016 NARC
Charlie Hines - 2016 NFC winner
Mark Medford - 2017 NRC win
Lauren Hays - 2019 NRC Win
Doreen Comrie-bristol - 2021 NARC win
Alvin Hatcher - 2021 NFC winner
Johnny Armstrong
Robby Bickley
Sylvia McClure
Wayne Carey
Jeff Schuett
Joel Harris
Andy Kahn
Joe Couey

but this has become a handler’s list not a dog list, previous success as a handler does not insure current or future success

The 2022 NARC event is about to happen !
My 2 teams came up short meaning we didn’t qualify. We had the points but not the win. If we had qualified we would have gone as life is short and the dogs life’s are shorter. But enough.
We have many friends there with talented animals. We hope all your marks are front footed and the blinds are lined . I m excited for each one of u guys so “ kick that can smartly “
Take in those moments !
Dave and Marty

Interesting list, thanks for sharing.
I'm sort of surprised that Tucker isn't running as he would be 2nd on your list
He's qualified at 11 years old and still running well and still winning/placing regularly
Good luck and congratulations to all the dog teams there
