A Nevada ice skating dog is one of five dogs honored at this year’s American Kennel Club Humane Fund Awards.

Officials at the New York-based club said the awards celebrate loyal and hardworking dogs who have dramatically improved the lives of their owners and communities.

The five winners were chosen from a pool of nearly 1,000 nominations and one prize is awarded in each of the five categories.

An 8 year old Labrador Retriever named Benny won the Exemplary Companion Dog award.

Benny, who is owned by Cheryl DelSangro from Las Vegas, can ice skate.

He became a fan favorite skating at Las Vegas Knights hockey games at the T-Mobile Arena with his own custom hockey skates and stick.

Benny also helps children with disabilities by skating with a program for children with autism and other developmental disabilities.

He skates, plays games and shows tricks on the ice with the children.

Benny and the other category winners each received $ 1,000 to be awarded to a pet-related charity of their owner’s choice, a one-year supply of premium dog food and a sterling silver medallion serious.
