Pointscore Competition Rules 2020

Pointscore Suspended Until Further Notice

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of shows being held due to the ban on non-essential gatherings of 500 or more people, we have made the decision to temporarily suspend all pointscore competitions until further notice. This is to make things fair and also to remove the pointscore as an 'incentive' to still go to shows.

Results for any show held on or after Monday 16th March will still be able to be submitted to our site but NO points will be awarded in any section of the pointscore. Shows held on or before Sunday 15th March, will still be eligible for points as long as they are submitted to our site within the normal 30 day limit.

Breeder points for titles will still be awarded as normal and they will need to be submitted to us within the usual time limits.

As the pandemic is an evolving situation, updates with regards to the pointscore will be made via this site as necessary. Thanks for your understanding.

The 2020 pointscore is split into six individual competitions.

Rules for all competitions

  • These rules cover all sections of the pointscore. For details about specific rules and points allocation for each specific pointscore competition, click the relevant buttons above.
  • Qualifying results must be submitted electronically via this web site within 30 days of the event. (See how to enter.) Title certificates for the breeder competition must be received by us within 90 days of the issue date on the certificate and adhere to any other time limits as specified in the rules.
  • The final date for submission of all results and title certificates is midnight on 6th January 2020 (Brisbane time).
  • Only the highest eligible award per exhibit per show will be counted for each competition section.
  • For FCI/CACIB shows that have different group allocations, any 'Show/Group' points won at those events will be allocated to the dog's normal ANKC group.
  • Where a show has a larger than normal number of absentees for any reason, we reserve the right to adjust the points allocated for the Show Dog of the Year and the Rising Star sections of the poinstcore at our absolute discretion.
  • In the interest of fair play and a sporting competition, once a dog has been entered into the pointscore competition, it will not be removed unless there are extenuating circumstances. (Please be certain that you wish to enter for the full year before completing the application).
  • It is up to the individual to check their points tally for correctness. Any errors or omissions should be immediately sent to us for correction. Changes will not be made to your points outside of the 30 day limit.
  • The integrity of the pointscore relies greatly on the honesty of the person submitting the results. If a result has been submitted that awards more points to a dog, breeder or handler than they would otherwise have been entitled to, we may disqualify the result. If 2 or more discrepancies are detected, we reserve the right to disqualify the "Competitor" entirely from this (and future) year's competition.
  • If a dog or owner (including part owners) is suspended by any ANKC affiliated State Canine Association, we reserve the right to disqualify the owner and/or dog from the competition.
  • Whilst all due care is taken, Dogz Online Pty Ltd (and/or the pointscore partners) assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions that may occur in this competition.
  • We reserve the right to alter these rules and/or terms and conditions at any time without individual notice to you. The decisions of Dogz Online Pty Ltd (and/or the pointscore partners) (including interpretation of the rules) are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  • By submitting an entry to the point score competition, you indicate your acceptance and understanding of these rules and conditions.
