The show starts with the junior (JK) males! Everyone who get a 1th prize quality will be back in the junior competition class(JKK) where they are placed from no.1-5. The judge may give a prize of honour(HP) to who he thinks are promizing, and they will be back later in the winner class(VK).
Then is the young dog(AUK), and they go through the same procedure into the competition class(AUKK).
All the dogs in the open class(AK) will get their quality prize. The ones with the 1th prize will compete with the juniors and the young dog - who have got a prize of honour - in the winner class(VK). They will be placed from no.1-5, and the judge may give the CAC for no.1 and ck for those he thinks have champion quality.

Veteran class(Vetk); They get quality judgement and they who get 1th prize will be placed from no.1-5. The judge may give a prize of honour(HP), or even better a ck! The best male veteran will compete with the best female veteran for Best Veteran!
At the end we have the Best Male(BHK) / Best Female(BTK)! The winner of the CAC and everyone with CK compete for the Best Male / Female. They are - again - placed from no.1-5.
The Best Male will compete with the Best Female for the Best Of Breed (BOB). No.2 is Best Of Opposite (BOS)
