Group Top 20 lists the Top 20 juniors competing in Novice and Open Classes (Senior, Intermediate, and Junior) at all AKC shows (including independent specialties).
Rankings are separated by each Group: Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting, Herding and Miscellaneous.
Statistics are compiled using every win and 2nd through 4th placements, including Best Junior and Reserve 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.
