Handfull Qualifies for the FCRSA Hall Of Fame

The Hall of Fame of the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America, Inc., honors Flat-Coated Retrievers that have achieved extraordinary success in their chosen fields, and at the same time have proven that they reflect the dual purpose nature of the breed. Inherent in the application for admission to the Hall of Fame is the intention to foster the historical concept of the Flat-Coated Retriever as a dual purpose dog and to see this exhibited in each individual dog.

The owner or breeder of the dog can apply for admittance to the FCRSA Hall of Fame by meeting the following requirements:

  • Earn a minimum of 175 points based on their accomplishments;
  • Earn a conformation championship; and
  • Earn a Junior Hunting Retriever (JH) or Working Certificate Excellent (WCX) title.

Handfull has earned 220 points, along with her AKC conformation championship, and Junior Hunter title.  She will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony held each year at the FCRSA National Specialty.

Handfull is the best of her mother Caris and grandmother Tralee.  She is a beautiful Flat-Coated Retriever, and she is clever, passing her first AKC tracking dog test (TD) at 10 months and earning her Champion Tracker (CT) at 3 years. She is an energetic, fun-loving companion, versatile in her learning aptitudes.  It is what I like most about the breed!  Handfull is my first FCR to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and I am honored and thrilled.  Having bred, trained, and handled her myself makes it all the sweeter!
