**CKC**

The point system in Canada is one of the easiest to understand. Unlike the AKC, because of the vastness of the country
the point system in Ontario is the same as B.C. and Quebec and all other provinces and territories.

The first point system starts at **WINNERS** . These points are based on the TOTAL number of dogs
competing at the **WINNERS** level meaning all non-champion dogs defeated in each breed. The point system is
as follows:

Dogs Competing 1 2
3-5 6-9 10-12 13 or More

Points 0
1 2 3
4 5

Note the Dogs Competing **INCLUDES** the dog awarded **WINNERS**.

To determine the total points available, you simply add up __ALL__ dogs in competition. This includes __ALL__ dogs
in __ALL__ classes -Puppy, Bred By, Canadian Bred, Open. Subtract any absent dogs. Let's say the entry is as follows:

3-7-2-1

remembering the breakdown, there are 3 class males, 7 class females, 2 Special Males and 1 Specials Females.

IF all entered dogs are in attendance, Winners Male would win 2 points(3-5 dogs=2 points), Winners female would win 3
points(6-9 dogs =3 points). One of these two will be awarded **BEST of WINNERS**. Using the point system, you
add up BOTH sets of winners(3+7=10). Let's say the Winners Male goes Best of Winners. He earned 2 points at winners but because
he also defeated the 7 females he defeated a __TOTAL__ of 10 dogs therefor gets 4 points. __NOTE __that
he __DOES NOT __get his 2 PLUS the female 3 points! The system is the **TOTAL DOGS DEFEATED**!!!!!!!

Let's take our wonderdog a little farther. Not only does he go Best of Winners, he goes **BEST of BREED**!!!
Wow! Now how many points does he have? Simple...total dogs in his breed were 13. Going by the chart, any dog that defeats
13 or more gets an automatic 5 points-the __MAXIMUM__ allowed at a show.
