The SHCA standard will be used as a framework for awarding points. Points will be awarded by each judge in each of the following categories using this point scale below. Scores will be tallied ringside. The top four places in each class will be awarded. If there is a tied score the judges will choose which dog is that placement winner.

Following the completion of the classes, the top 10 point earners will return to the ring for a parade and awards (Top 10 Award). After the Top 10 Parade, the first place winners from each class will come back into the ring for judging and award of Best In Showcase.
