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.
