HERE IS the first update of the leaders in the Dog World/Arden Grange Top Dog competition 2017, taking into account results up to and including WELKS weekend and the Bank Holiday Monday.

There are two joint leaders for the top spot, the Beagle Peter Piper and the Finnish-bred Smooth Collie Hot Shot.

Third, as he was at the end of last year, is a dog from another pastoral breed, the Pembroke Corgi Thunderball, who topped the group in 2016.

Fourth and top utility is the Crufts RBIS-winning Miniature Poodle Best Kept Secret. Two other Crufts group winners head the terrier and working groups, the Lakeland Enigma and the Newfioundland D’Artagnan.

The gundog group has joint leaders in the shapes of English Setter Xanthe and the Crufts BIS-winning American Cocker Miami Ink, while the Pug Callin Baton Rouge heads the toys.

The rare breed and imported register sections are topped by last year’s overall winners in these categories, the Bolognese Mtteo and the Griffon Fauve Dino.

The points system works as follows: your dog gains two points for a CC plus one for best of breed where CCs are on offer. A group win at a championship show scores five points (as does best in show at a single group or Scottish Breeds championship show); group 2 three, group 3 two and group 4 one point.

Best in show at an all-breeds championship show scores an extra five points, reserve three. One extra point goes to BIS at a working/pastoral breeds championship show.

Rare breeds score two for best of sex plus one for BOB at championship shows where they have breed classes; imported register breeds score similarly in championship show classes open to all IR breeds in that group.

Inevitably at this early stage in the show season, in quite a number of breeds no dog has yet scored more than three points; here no leader is recorded.

Arden Grange provides prizes for the eventual annual leaders who also have the chance to advertise in the exclusive Best of British Dogs supplement at Crufts time.

If there are any queries about the points, please contact Wendy Bull on wendy.bull@dogworld.co.uk.
