JUDGING SCHEDULE CLICK HERE
How to read the schedule:
As a rule of thumb, judging takes approximately two minutes per dog. Meaning, if there are 20 dogs being shown before your breed, you can expect your breed to start approximately 40 minutes after the listed ring time. Keep in mind, there are often absentees, so don't rely on that rule of thumb as infallible!
FBJ means "Follows Breed Judging", when all the Breeds have been judged then the Group will be judged.
In the above example, notice that are multiple breeds, listed at the same time. These breeds will be shown in the listed order, one right after the other. The first block of dogs start showing at 8:30. If any breeds are absent, the judge moves directly on to the next breed listed.
If the judge completes judging on the first section of dogs early, s/he can not start judging the second block of dogs until 9:30. Judging for a breed can not start before the listed time.
What do all those numbers by the breed name mean?
The first number listed (13, in this case) is the total number entered for that breed. The numbers after the breed are considered the "break down" of the entry.
The first number (3) is the number of "class" (competing towards their CKC championship) dogs (dog = male) entered.
The second number (5) is the number of class bitches (bitch = female).
The next number (1) is the number of Dog Specials. "Special" means that the dog has already earned their CKC championship and they are competing for ranking points. Specials only compete at Best of Breed and above level (Group and Best In Show).
The last number is the number of Bitch Specials (4) being shown.
