According to the American Kennel Club's Obedience Regulations: "A score of 200 points is possible, but it is extremely rare. It is a normal occurance for a dog and handler to earn a perfect score on one or two of the exercises, but it is very rare for a judge to have the privilege of observing and scoring a dog and handler who perform perfectly all the exercises in a class."
We are guessing that Betsy didn't read that!
She is leading her students by example with 18 perfect scores of 200!
Top Dog students are following in her footsteps and have also become members of The Top Dog 200 Club!
