New to the show world

Hi, Everyone!

I am new to the show world and would like to know if anyone can tell me what this entry breakdown means. For example, I will be in Reno, NV and the havaneses entered were 14 total and the breakdown was: 5-7(0-2)0

What does this mean? Thanks!

It means there are 5 class dogs entered in the show, 7 class bitches. Then there are no dog specials entered, two bitch specials entered, and nothing entered in the non-regular classes (veteran dog, etc...if offered at the show). You can look at the class counts and determine how many points the show is worth...assuming all the entries show up. :-)

5-number of class dogs
7-number of class bitches
0-number of dog specials
2-number of bitch specials
0-number of veterans

Here is a great book I recommend that helped me understand the dog show world and all the odd parts about it. It is kind of like a dog shows for dummies primer.

Thank Amanda! I added it to my wish list. I have too many books to read right now, but I'd love help understanding what happens at a dog show!

Thanks, Amanda! I already placed an order at amazon.

I was looking at the Reno, NV class points and it is as follows (also reading the AKC website). The points are:

2 - 2 = 1 point
4 - 5 = 2 points
5 - 8 = 3 points
6 - 9 = 4 points
9 - 12 = 5 points

So, if my breakdown is 5-7(0-2)0, how many points can I earn if my dog wins? Would it be 2 points or 3 points? Why?

I can't really understand the explanation in the AKC website.

your first number is for how many dogs (boys) it takes to make those points and the second number is for how many bitches it takes to for those points

so for the Reno show it is 3 points if all the boys show up, if even one boy is missing then the major would break and become 2 points. and for the girls it is only 2 points, but if the major holds for the boys then the winners bitch can pick up the major by going best of winners.
Hope I didn't confuse you Look forward to meeting you in Reno, I will be there too

Oh, wow! I look forward to meeting you too. You'll probably spot me right away since I'm a newbie and will be extremely nervous. And thanks! I think I got it now, somewhat, how to calculate the points. Thanks for clearing that up.
