On September 21st, 2013, at the Canadian Nationals held in Kitchener, Ontario, it was announced that MARVIS KILGOUR was chosen as this year's recipient of the "PETER CRAWFORD MEMORIAL TROPHY".
THE PETER CRAWFORD MEMORIAL TROPHY will be given out each year at the National Speciality Show. The criteria by which the Board of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Canada chooses the recipient is:
"A Canadian German Shepherd Dog Club Canada Member in good standing that has set an example of the versatility of our breed and good sportsmanship and is involved in all aspects of the breed".
The German Shepherd Dog Club of Manitoba, Inc. holds CKC approved Obedience Trials and Specialty Shows for German Shepherds, the GSDC of Canada Central Region Futurity/Maturity show and various other tests or activities such as a Sanctioned Match where all breeds of dogs are welcomed.
Our members are busy in many competitive areas with their dogs, and others are involved with herding, tracking, Canadian Good Neighbour, Rally-O, and St. John Ambulance in the Therapy Dog program.
The GSDC congratulates it’s members and their beautiful dogs on their accomplishments and salutes those who volunteer their time and effort to assist other clubs with their events, and who dedicate their time to the community to better the lives of others.
