Group Top 20 lists the Top 20 juniors competing in Open Classes (Senior, Intermediate, and Junior) including Limited and Invitational Classes at all AKC shows (including independent specialties). Novice Classes are not included in 2005 statistics.

Rankings are separated by each Group: Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding.

Statistics are compiled using every win and 2nd through 4th placements, including Best Junior points.

One (1) point is awarded for every competitor defeated. If a junior shows multiple breeds within the same group, points will be totaled within that same group.
