2019 Purina Points Program Information: Nite Hunt

Nestle Purina PetCare, in conjunction with the United Kennel Club, established the Purina Award for the Outstanding UKC Nite Hunt Coonhound of the Year.

Purina recognizes the immense interest in the sport of Coonhound Nite Hunt competition and the tremendous amount of time spent by competitors in working with and training their dogs. The Purina Outstanding UKC Nite Hunt Award was established to honor the countrys outstanding coonhound and give recognition to the owner and handler.

The Purina Series has been an integral part of UKCs coonhound program for nearly four decades. The honor and recognition it has brought to its winners and the sport throughout those years is paramount, and is something Purina is very proud of. The format has, for the most part, remained basically the same up to this point. However, as times change so does the climate of the sport and the expectations of its participants. The Purina Committee has recognized this need for change and is proud to offer the following new and improved format for this most prestigious program.

Beginning January 1, 2019, Purina Points events will serve as qualifying events for dogs to earn eligibility to represent their breed at the National Championship, where breed winners and the Outstanding Coonhound of the Year will be determined.
Purina provides awards and hosts the Award Ceremony for the Purina Outstanding Coonhound program. The program is administered, judged and scored by the Purina Award Committee which is made up of seven prominent and experienced individuals representing each of the seven UKC recognized coonhound breeds as follows:
American Black & Tan Coonhound - Tim Whitaker, Paragon, Indiana
American Leopard Hound - Greg Nusbaumer, Uniondale, Indiana
Bluetick Coonhound - David Gardin, Norwood, North Carolina
English Coonhound - Darrell Brown, Walnut Cove, North Carolina
Plott Hound - Wayne Allen, Cartersville, Georgia
Redbone Coonhound - Harry Oumedian, Howell, Michigan
Treeing Walker Coonhound - Gary Starns, Ada, Oklahoma

The Purina Outstanding Coonhound Award Committee has the final decision in all matters pertaining to the programs operation. The Committee reserves the right to, during the calendar year, make any changes deemed necessary to any part of rules, schedule or otherwise. Any such changes are announced on the UKC website, www.ukcdogs.com. The Committee reserves the right to audit and approve the final tabulated scores, and to announce those coonhounds qualified for the National Championship. Whenever possible, Purina Outstanding Coonhound Award Committee members participate at the official presentation of awards.
