Grand Ending

I still haven’t learned how to count Grand Champion points but this time less was more.   The AKC has finished tallying the last days of the NM show circut and this is how we ended up Grand Champion wise:

Ch Mariel’s Flying Spirit, RN  aka PJ

Number of Points 18
Number Major Wins 4
Number Major Judges 4
Total Number Judges 6
Events w/CH Defeated 5

Ch Rockie Top’s Flying Snow, RN aka Frost

Number of Points 23  
Number Major Wins 5  
Number Major Judges 5  
Total Number Judges 6  
Events w/CH Defeated 1  

Not bad for the kids, PJ was shown 8 times and Frost who just finished her Championship in September was shown 6 times.  PJ just needs some single points and Frost needs two wins over specials for her last 2 points.

Here is how the Grand Champion program works:

A dog must be (1) a Champion of Record or (2) have been transferred to BOB competition based upon the owners’ records of their having completed the requirements for a CH title to be eligible for Grand Championship (GCH) competition.

The American Kennel Club requires a dog to obtain a total of 25 points with three major wins (a major win is worth three points or higher) to become a Grand Champion. The majors must be won under three different judges and at least one other judge must award some of the remaining points – so you need to win under at least four different judges. Also at least one Champion of Record must be defeated at three of these shows.

Best of Breed – BOB
Best of Opposite Sex – BOS
Select Dog – SD
Select Bitch – SB

Remember, point schedules vary by show location. If you are not at the show, make certain you get the points schedule for the event region where your dog won. Refer to the Schedule of Points.

The Grand Championship (GCH) points awarded are determined by the same divisional point schedules that are used for the calculation of championship (CH) points.
