About APHC

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. 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.
