How the Points are Calculated

Dog of the Year Tables

All scheduled individual events in all BAA Shows up to the 31st August (excluding the Finals) count towards the BAA Dog of the Year Tables

Points are awarded for top 20 places and for Clear Rounds in all Introductory, Primary, Novice, Graduate and Masters classes as shown in the table below
Each dog is automatically entered into one of 20 Leagues based on Dog Level (Introductory, Primary, Novice, Graduate, Masters) and Dog Height (Maxi, Medium, Mini, Micro) and will accrue points in that League
Where dogs are competing at separate Levels for Jumping and Agility, they will earn the points for that Level in each discipline and their points will be recorded in the League Table corresponding to the higher Level, e.g. a Maxi dog competing in Primary Agility and Novice Jumping will earn Primary points in Agility and Novice points in Jumping and will appear in the Novice Maxi League Table
Dogs that are promoted during the course of the season will take their points with them to their new level. Only points subsequently gained at the new level will be added to those already earnt
The highest placed dog in each League at the end of the season will be awarded the title BAA Dog of the Year in that category

Jumping & Agility Leagues

All scheduled individual events in all BAA Shows up to the 31st August (excluding the Finals) count towards the Jumping & Agility Leagues

Points are awarded for top 20 places and for Clear Rounds in all Introductory, Primary, Novice, Graduate and Masters classes as shown in the table below
Each dog is automatically entered into one of 5 Leagues in each discipline based on Dog Level (Introductory, Primary, Novice, Graduate, Masters) independent of Dog Height (Maxi, Medium, Mini, Micro) and will accrue points in that League
Points for the Jumping and Agility Leagues determine the dogs that qualify for the BAA Finals in August and those that qualify for automatic or voluntary promotion
The Top 10* Introductory and Primary, 8* Novice and 5* Graduate Plus dogs in each discipline on the closing date for entries for the BAA Grand Prix Finals will qualify automatically for the BAA Finals to be held August Bank Holiday weekend. All other competitors meeting the show schedule criteria will get the chance to try to qualify on the day
