Points are awarded on a sliding scale for places where the show awards a rosette, and unplaced clear rounds within the course time. Only awarded places included faulted rounds if your rosette has a number on it, it will be CLAIMED for you.

Within the points year, The Aces can only gain points in The Aces league. Dogs in The Pack or The Jokers can gain points in both leagues but they do not count for both.

In all league categories, points are for one dog only, i.e. points for more than one dog are not added together. Where two dogs have an equal number of points the number of wins will be used to determine which takes the higher place, followed (if necessary) by the number of 2nds, 3rds, etc.

The winners and runners up of each league will be presented with a Trophy and Rosette at the Finals show.
