Ok, complete noob question. Can someone please explain the confirmation show ranking system? I've read the help section on it but it's still as clear as mud. I just got a Reserve Winners Bitch on one of my pups and I'm trying to figure out if it's better/worse than best in breed. Any extra info would be great. happy :)

It's worst than Best in breed

Winners Bitch is the best non-champion bitch in your breed in the current show

Reserve Winners Bitch is the runner up to a Winners Bitch

Winners Dog is the same as Winner Bitch, but is the male non-champion winner

Reserve Winners Dog is the runner up to the Winners Dog

Best of Opposite Sex is the best dog / bitch that was not best in breed. So if a Bitch got Best in Breed, the Dog could get Best of Opposite Sex. Sometimes class dogs / bitches ( non-champions ) can get best in Breed or Best of Opposite sex!

Best in Breed is the best dog / bitch out of all dogs of that breed entered in that show

You can get 2nd, 3rd and 4th in breed. Sometimes one of the class dogs will get these placements. Best of Opposite does not always get these placements

Dogs can get group placements which mean they beat every dog in their breed and the dogs in the other breeds of their group that did not get a higher group placement.

Show placements beat any dog in any group under a higher show placement

Best in show is the highest you can get!

You get points to be a Champion by winning Winners Bitch, Winners Dog, Best in Breed, Best of Opposite Sex or 2nd 3rd or 4th in class groups

You become a GCH by winning points in the Champion Category, you can only get points in this category bt winning Best of Opposite Sex or Best in Breed!


Youcan only get points if you beat a certian amount of dogs which can be found in the breeds home / information page (:

Hope this makes sense!

New here, just getting started. I found this topic and I have a question. I've entered my Basset Hound bitch in 2 shows in which she has won Winners Bitch/Best of Opposite Sex, but didn't get any points for it. Is it because there were only two dog's and the other dog got Best of Breed?

Just trying to work out the show pts and such. I know my Lemmie isn't sessioned up completely yet, but I'm still giving her a shot.

Anywho, here's a link to one of the shows she just competed in (if it shows up).

Thanks for any and all info!

Yes, the basset didn't get any points because she did not beat another dog by going winners bitch. The more dogs beat, the more points winners will get.

Did you know?
There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
The Kennel Club (UK) system, which is also used by the Australian National Kennel Council[1] and in other countries, is considered the most difficult to earn a title under.
