 Versatility Program

The GWPCA Versatility Title Awards are also presented at the awards banquet. This award is designed to recognize German Wirehaired Pointers and their owners that have distinguished themselves in AKC or NAVHDA, field events and AKC conformation and performance competitions.

These dogs possess the temperament, intelligence, hunting and working capabilities which represent essential characteristics of the breed. To attain any one of the three levels of recognition represents a commendable dedication by the owner/trainer/handler. The GWPCA wishes to recognize these achievements at our annual awards banquet.
