QUALIFICATION FOR THE EVENT
Samoyed of the Year: An invitation is extended to the Best of Breed from each Championship show during the year, should the BOB be already qualified or unable to attend Best Opposite sex is invited. If both BOB and BOS are already qualified or unable to attend then the invitation is offered to the reserve of each sex starting with the same sex as the BOB, should all these be unable to accept then there is no representative from that show.
Samoyed Puppy of the Year: An invitation is extended to the Best puppy in Breed at each Championship show during the year, should that puppy be already qualified or unable to attend then the invitation is offered to the Beat opposite Sex puppy in Breed, should all these be unable to accept then there is no representative from that show.
Competitors in both sections are given a subsidised entry and in order to fund this an auction is held during the evening, and the society raises money throughout the year by means of raffles etc.
METHOD OF JUDGING
There are several rounds to the competition and the format are designed so that should the best dogs meet in any round they can still progress ensuring that the judges choice of the best dogs are in the final round.
In round one the competitors are placed into eight groups ( number in each group is dependant on total number of qualifiers ) and are placed in the groups by random draw, the judge then selects two dogs to progress to the next round, these competitors then draw a card which denotes the group they are in for the next round.
In round two we are left with four groups of four dogs, again the judge selects two from each group to progress and they draw a card to denote the group for the next round.
In round three we are left with two groups of four dogs once again the judge selects two from each group to progress to the final round.
In the final round the last four dogs compete and the results are announced in reverse order.
I the Puppy competition there are normally less qualifiers and therefore it starts with four groups then follows the same system as above
