HERE IS the three-quarter stage update for the leaders in the Dog World/Arden Grange Top Dog competition 2015, taking into account results up to and including Belfast weekend.

  Current leader is the Papillon Shootin Starmaker, a BIS and twice RBIS winner who has also taken five groups up until this point in the year.

  Runner-up is another toy, the Longcoated Chihuahua Topaz Chancer who was leading the table after the first quarter and was top toy last year.

  Other group leaders are the Weimaraner De Ice, Bulldog He’s Tyler, Bouvier Lord Of The Rings, Australian Shepherd Man Of Mystery, Border Terrier Bok To Bach, and Beagle Forgetmeknot, a mixture of relatively new faces and consistent winners from past years.

  The Spanish Water Dog Castro is in the lead in the rare breeds section and the imported register section is headed by the Portuguese Pointer Ruy.

  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.

  Arden Grange provide 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 Adrian Marett on adrian@dogworld.co.uk.
