K9 NEWS in partnership with ROYAL CANIN®
DOG OF THE YEAR 2019
This is an exciting new competition with a points system designed to create a level playing field across Breed, Group and Best in Show, allowing those dogs who consistently win at Breed level the same opportunities as those who feature at Group level.
It will also recognise wins at Championship shows where there are no CC’s on offer or Not Separately Classified classes.
A Dog of the Year will be declared for each Breed, Group, Top Rare Breed, Top Imported Register and an Overall Winner.
The Dog of the Year & Group winner prizes will be presented at the Pawscars 2020 and Breed winner prizes will be presented at Crufts 2020.
The competition runs from 1st January to 31st December 2019.
Points are awarded as shown below.
