My dog Stanley took BOB and won a group placement in the show at the link below. I'm trying to understand the results. The judge is stated to prefer certain handlers but not overt about it, to have a preference for bitches over dogs, and to rank most highly head, coat, size, and feet. The two dogs who did the best were owner handled, not fully sessioned, and the bitch who got Best of Opposite was downgraded due to a recent litter. The last place dog was fully sessioned and had a good handler listed on the judge's preference list, and had the highest stats for the judge's preferred traits. Poking around some other breed results, I see similar types of things. Best in Show was a partially sessioned starter dog. Which I get it that the judge is also said to look at dogs versus their breed rather than overall quality (might explain the starter dog winning BIS) but of my three dogs, doesn't explain why Stanley would be the winner.

In all honesty I think the shows glitch on the rare occasion.
That or there must be a small element of random chance in the algorithm and once in a blue moon you get weird results like this.
Keeps you on your toes!

Additional points may be awarded to the Best of Winners, or a class dog that goes Best of Breed or Best of Opposite Sex, again depending on the number of dogs competing
