Best-In-Shows and other Stats

NOTE: this list not worked on since December 2003

this list is by NO MEANS complete (not even close) and most likely out-of-date ... anyone left out is purely lack of time (I work on it when I have "free time") and research abilities ... but at least some of our pointer BIS dogs are listed in one place ... if you have additions or corrections plase let me know ... email me

United States (AKC) Best-In-Shows
1924 - First year AKC Best-In-Show --- "In 1923, AKC barred interbreed competition except in the Miscellaneous Class. Comprehensive new rules for Groups and Best In Show judging were adopted effective 1924. Under the new rules and judging procedures adopted at that time, all breeds (except for those in Miscellaneous Competition) were separated into five groups: Group 1 - Sporting Dogs, which included at that time all Hound breeds; Group 2 - Working Dogs; Group 3 - Terriers; Group 4 - Toy Breeds; and Group 5 - Non-Sporting Breeds. These Best of Breed winners in each group were then judged together to determine the best dog in that group and, finally, the five group winners met to decide the best dog in the show. By 1924, the new group alignment was in general use. The Westminster Kennel Club was the first to include judging for Best In Show under the new format. Later in the 1920's, the groups were expanded to six, as Hounds became separate group." -- AKC Website, 2002
