If a dog advances to group where group competition is available or wins a Best in Show or Reserve Best in Show in a multi-breed show, the WGSDCA offers additional championship points. Points awarded are as follows:
A dog earns one point for every breed beaten in group competition up to a total of five. This applies regardless of the group placement. For example, if there are 6 breeds competing in the herding group and a WGSD takes group 1, he earns 5 points because he beat five breeds. Likewise if there are 9 breeds competing in the herding group and a WGSD takes group 4, he earns 5 points because he beat five breeds.
If a WGSD wins Best in Show or Reserve Best in Show in a multi-breed show, he earns one point for every breed beaten up to a total of five, even if they were not herding breeds. For example, if the GSD is the only herding breed so there is no competition in group, but he goes on to win Best in Show over 10 other breeds (in other groups) he earns five points because he beat 10 breeds.
NOTE: A dog cannot earn more more than five points in one show. These points can come from breed competition, group competition or Best in Show, but cannot exceed 5 points total per show. For example, if a dog wins Best of Breed with a 5 point major, wins Group 1 beating 5 herding breeds, and takes Best in Show, they still only earn 5 points, the maximum possible for one show.
