APHC 2017: Australian Pup and Handler Competition2017-03-14
The Australian Pup and Handler Competition was founded by Taylor ‘Tycho’ Cook in late 2016/ early 2017 and the inaugural event was held in mid-2017 to much fanfare and success including a sold out main event. The inaugural event was a testament to Tycho’s hard work, determination and stubbornness that it was put together so well on a shoe-string budget with limited support and resources.
The concept behind the APHC is to provide an opportunity for the community to select who they think represents them best. It’s not a popularity contest, not a best-in-show contest, it’s a community competition open to all.
Nerdy Doggo supported APHC in 2017 because of its support to welcome all genders and sexualities and help the Australian community launch a new type of event for the Oceanic community as a whole.
