The top obedience dog is also celebrated, as is the Best In Show Dog of the Year, to be given to the dog achieving the most all-breed Best in Show wins at AKC shows throughout the year.

Nominated by peers. Voted on by the fancy.

The Dogs in Review Annual Achievement Awards nominees are selected by a nominating committee comprised of seven active, experienced members of the purebred dog fancy residing throughout the United States. The nominees in each category will be listed for subscribers and readers to cast their vote.
