Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club



 The BARRC Owner Handler Award Program is designed to encourage 

members of BARRC who are 

owner-handlers to participate, 

with their own Rhodesian Ridgebacks, 

in various events and activities.


BARRC Owner Handler Award Program

The BARRC Owner Handler Award Program will help to foster sportsmanship among those handling their dogs in various events and activities. This program will also help to unite the owner-handlers of BARRC and help foster new friendships and a sense of community.

The Owner Handler Program is being updated for 2018! All points count from December 1, 2017 through November 30, 2018.l

Please note we are expanding the program even more. 2018 will include more conformation classes (4-6 month puppy, stud dog/brood bitch), more obedience (graduate classes), more rally (intermediate  and masters classes) and more AKC titling opportunities, like Trick Dog! All of you that earned your Trick Dog certification at BARRC Holiday Fun Day are off to a great start for the 2018 program, so get your applications in!
