The Amateur Field Trial Clubs of America (AFTCA) is an organization made up of individuals and clubs that volunteer, organize, compete, participate, and promote not only in our sport, but the complex relationships with owning and caring for animals and protecting, through conservation efforts, a healthy upland game population.
We are thankful to Purina for taking the lead and providing “Blue Ribbon” sponsorship of this National Awards Program. Their quality foods power many of the handler’s dogs competing. If you’re looking for a quality dog food consider Purina, thousands of amateur handlers already are!
The AFTCA is excited to announce the creation of the largest and most inclusive Amateur Handler Award in the organization’s history and in the sport of Field Trialing!
Over 100 years ago the Amateur Field Trial Clubs of America (AFTCA) was created to offer amateur handlers the opportunity to participate in Bird Dog Field Trials.
