To determine the number of points earned by a dog awarded Winners, total all dogs in competition which were defeated, directly or indirectly, for the highest of the following official breed awards: Winners, Best of Winners, Best of Breed or Best Opposite Sex and then consult the schedule set forth above. The point system provides for additional points if a class dog awarded Best of Breed also places in the group as listed below;

 Group Points
Breeds Competing Group 1st Group 2nd Group 3rd Group 4th
13 or more 5 4 3 2
 10 to 12  4  3  2  1

 4  2  1  1  0
 3  2  1  0  0
 2  1  0  0  0
 1  0  0  0  0

A class dog awarded Best in Show at an all-breed Championship show will be credited with 5 points inclusive of any points earned at the breed or group level. In counting the number of eligible dogs in competition, a dog that is disqualified or that is dismissed, excused or ordered from the ring by the judge, shall NOT be included in the calculation for championship points (Absentees are not to be included). In order for a dog to be recognized as a Canadian Champion it must: (1) earn at least ten championship points under at least three different judges; (2) a two point win awarded either at the breed or group level; and (3) be individually registered in the records of the CKC or have a CKC Event Registration Number (ERN)
