One of the services we provide to the dog show community is an up to date ranking of our Top Ten Dogs.  Our numbers are based on ACK official results augmented by the reported counts from superintendents MBF and Onofrio (widely believed to be reliable) and our estimates from our own mathematical model, which has had a margin of error of less than 0.5 percent over the last three years. (which is way better than the average national polling organizations)

We have received several requests for the exact numbers we have in our rankings.  We have purposely not included the exact numbers because we don't want to quibble over a dozen points variance in a 30,000 total.  We provide the following chart with the warning that the numbers are ESTIMATES and published for our readers amusement.   So enjoy!



  1. Thank you so much for sharing this, Billy. It makes the year-end remaining shows that much more interesting for the rest of us!

  2. How exciting! Thank you for sharing, Billy. This year is much more exciting than recent years and I think it will come down to those end of the year shows out in California. What a wonderful year for all in the rankings!

  3. Wow!! Talk about a close race!!! It must be nerve wracking for those that
    are involved with the top 3 dogs......naturally, I am rooting for David and
    Thanks for posting this, Billy!! You are always so on the ball!!

  4. Go Amy and Dodger!

  5. Billy, you're awesome, thanks for putting this together!

  6. What an exciting year this has been! Thanks so much for letting us know what a close finish they face! (Here's hoping for the luck of the Irish to make Emily end first!)

  7. Wow, Billy can you post this graph every Monday so we can watch the race.
