2010-2011 Purina Top All-Age Handler Award

Purina Top All-Age Handler

A string of six Pointers that earned 15 placements and 2,543 points in all-age competitions put professional handler Andy Daugherty of Grovespring, Mo., on top to win his second Purina All-Age Handler of the Year Award.

Though it has been 13 years since Daugherty won the Purina Award in 1997-1998, he has placed among the top five handlers every year. “This award is something you work for all year,” he says. “It is rewarding when it comes together and you win.”
