Below are just some of the special awards my fur kits have gotten

American Ferret Association's

Ferret of the Year and Specialty Ferrets of the Year Awards

To receive Ferret of the Year,  a ferret must be shown in at least 4 AFA Sanctioned shows in a given year in that particular class.  In Title Classes, ferrets are judges by structure, maintenance and disposition.  The ferret that does overall best in points and placement is awarded the Ferret of the Year in that class.  

For Specialty Ferret of the Year, the ferret that consistently places highest in that particular specialty class get Specialty Ferret of the Year.  Specialty are judged mainly by coat color. 

 

 Below are pictures of some of my fur kids with their awards.
