There are different classes: puppy, 12-18 months, open, bred by, novice, owner-handler, and American bred. I think that's all. Those different classes are all judged separately by male and female.
Then the winners of all those are judged (separately by male and female) for Winner's Dog and Winner's Bitch.
Then those 2 dogs go into the ring with the Champions and Grand Champions, and 3 final dogs are selected:
Best of Breed - the best dog
Best of Opposite sex
Best of winners is the best of the two winners dogs.
I don't know what Select is. I'm guessing the second best? I'm sure somebody else will explain.
(Points are earned based on who wins what, which is a bit complicated.)
