About the Award:

  • Points will be awarded for any CKC performance or conformation events.
  • Applicants must submit their entries for the Nabs trophy by December 31st for the previous calendar year to the Events and Awards Committee.
  • Applicants are responsible for maintaining record of their own scores to be submitted on the prescribed form.

For Performance (obedience, rally, agility, herding, tracking), points are awarded as follows:

For qualifying rounds, a first place at any level is worth 4 points, second place 3 points; third place 2 points. High in Trial for performance is 10 points, with a maximum of 10 points per trial.

For Conformation:

Breed level – the top three placements at any show will accumulate points as follows: a first place is worth 4 points, second place 3 points; third place 2 points. Best of Breed is worth 9 points, Best of Opposite Sex is worth 8 points, Best of Winners is worth 7 points; Winners dog/Bitch is worth 6 and Reserve Winners Dog/ Bitch is worth 5. At the Breed level only the highest point total on the day is counted so the maximum would be 9 points.

Group level – Group wins are worth 4 points for 1st, 3 for 2nd, 2 for 3rd and 1 for 4th in addition to points earned at the breed level. Best in Show is an additional 10 points so the maximum would be 14 points.


Taffy competes at an agility trial (which has only two events in CKC). She is second in Jumpers with Weaves (3 points) and first in Agility (4 points) and she receives High in Trial (10 points). She would accumulate 10 points for that trial.

Taffy competes in conformation the following weekend. She comes first in her class (4 points) and goes on to take Best of Breed (9 points). She then goes on to a Group second (3 points). In this case the class win, 4 points, gets dropped in favour of the higher BOB score (9) plus the Group score (3). Taffy earns 12 points on the day. In total Taffy has earned 22 points which are eligible for the NaBs trophy.
