SA Point Score Show dates & Winners

New Point Score System.

Starting in June 2022, we are happy to announce that we are introducing an exciting new Point Score System, with more awards available for all.



  • More simplified and easier to manage
  • More awards, not just the best of each coat


How the new system will work

Points will be allocated at each Point Score Show as follows:

Best of Breed                         5 points

Runner Up                             3 points

Challenge                               2 points

Reserve Challenge                1 points


For example if your dog wins Best of Breed it gets a 5 points total – under the old system the points system was more complicated, and points were also allocated for awards in group and in show, which sometimes meant a trip or two to Dogs SA to look through marked catalogues.

This system would mean we only need a record of the breed judging – making the record keeping much simpler.


Rising Star

This year we are also introducing a Rising Star competition.

Points will be allocated at each Point Score Show for Baby Puppy, Minor Puppy, Puppy and Junior Classes as follows:

Class wins                              1 point

Class of Breed                        2 point


For example, if you win Junior class and win Junior of Breed you will get 2 points total at that show.

At shows where the Group 1-4 system is used, they often don’t award class of breed for Minor Puppy or Junior, in which case only 1 point can be allocated at those shows for Minor and Junior classes.

Where 2 shows are held on the same day, only the am show will count, unless otherwise stated.    

Where shows are affected by the Dogs SA Hot Weather Policy, the night show on the date allocated will count, and if the show is cancelled, then another show will not replace it.

 All owners of the dog must be members of the Chihuahua Club of SA Inc.
