Top Brood Rules and Regulations


Points awarded as follows:

Breeds with CCs

When a dog or bitch wins its first CC of the year, it scores 5 points for both its sire and dam. For the second third and fourth CC during the year it scores an additional point making a maximum total of 8 points.

Non CC status breeds & Import Breeds Register

When a dog or bitch wins its first Best of Breed (Non CC Breeds) or Best of Sex (Import Breeds Register) of the year, at a Championship show, it scores 5 points for both its sire and dam. For the second third and fourth such win during the year it scores an additional point making a maximum total of 8 points.

In the event of a tie

At the end of the competition period a tie breaker, where applicable, will be used to determine an outright winner in each breed as follows: The total number of points scored by a dog or bitches progeny in the Top Dogs table will be taken into consideration to produce a winner. If after the tie break there are more than two leaders, then ‘no clear winner’ will be declared.

Period of competition

Points are calculated from relevant wins within the calendar year (1 January to 31 December).

Final decision

No discussions will be entered into and the decision of the Editor in all circumstances will be final.
