The 10 High Scoring Total Dogs at the Total Dog Invitational!

October 26, 2021

At the UKC Total Dog Invitational, pre-qualified dogs were invited to attend and put their skills to the test! The event took place at the Shreveport Convention Center, October 21-23, 2021 in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Dogs' titles earned prior to the event were worth a certain number of bonus points. At the event, nosework, weight pull, rally obedience, obedience, and conformation were offered and dogs earned points based on their qualifying runs and their scores. The complete points schedule can be found here in the 2021 Judging Program, along with the list of entered dogs.

Dogs had to qualify in at least one performance event on Thursday or Friday at the event in order to participate in the conformation competition on Saturday. On Saturday, eight randomly assigned conformation groups were judged by a panel of three judges and each dog was scored numerically by each judge. Groups assignment can be found here (PDF). The dog with the highest score between the three judges won a Group 1, the second highest won Group 2, and so on. All the points, including performance, were then tallied to determine the overall winner!

Of the entered dogs, those listed below had the highest placements and were invited on stage to claim their awards. Congratulations to Brian Huss and Bondi, the Golden Retriever, who won first place. Bondi received the all-new title of National Total Dog (NTD) and $10,000!
