THE ORTHOPEDIC FOUNDATION FOR ANIMALS
MASTIFF CLUB OF AMERICA
CHAMPION OF HEALTH AWARDS
Beginning with the 2006 MCOA National Specialty, the Mastiff Club of America, in conjunction with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals started recognizing Mastiffs which have received significant accomplishments in the ring, in the field, as working dogs, or as producers, AND that have the full complement of appropriate health testing (CHIC Certificate recipients) by issuing them a “Champion of Health Award".
These special Mastiffs have been recognized during the banquet award program at our nationals by receiving the “Champion of Health Award” along with an engraved silver medallion and a $100 donation in the dog’s honor to the AKC CHF Mastiff Donor Advised Fund.
If your dog has a CHIC number and has recently celebrated a significant accomplishment at the national level, in the ring, in the field, as a working dog, or as a producer, he or she can be nominated for this exciting award.
Nominations will be made to the MCOA and forwarded to the OFA for their review. The OFA will make the final decision as to who will be awarded the annual “Champion of Health Award"! To submit your dog’s name for consideration:
1. You must be a member of the Mastiff Club of America in good standing
