Jake’s Plates are annual NVBC awards in memory of Jacob of Sterling, CDX, JH “Jake”. The plates are awarded to NVBC members and their Brittanys excelling in obedience and field work based upon points accumulated in AKC Obedience and Hunt Test categories conducted between November 1st and October 31st. For other than owner-handled dogs, points will be awarded at a ½ rate of the schedule. A schedule is in place to determine the ‘points’ for the highest scoring obedience dog. The member shall keep a record of the name of the trial giving club, the trial date, the numerical score earned, the number of dogs competing, the number of dogs beaten, and the placements (1st-4th) earned for each qualifying score.
The schedule of points for the Hunt Test category requires members to keep a record of the test giving club, the test date, and the numerical average score earned for each qualifying score.
