Mana's 5 Cents for Advice Marcato "Wesson" did me proud today in Erie, PA. She went winner's bitch and best of winners for her first point under Kenneth "Chip" Rayner Jr!

Wesson is bred by and co owned with Catherine Morton, trained, conditioned, and handled by myself :)

Thanks :D

To the mods, feel free to remove that last pic. I know it's oversized. I resized but it apparently didn't save. Here's the resized version:

Across the board (all breeds) it takes 2 dogs, or 2 bitches, to make 1 point.

After that it just depends on where you live. To get a 3 point major in GSDs in Pennsylvania, you need to have 12 bitches. Where I live (Okla) it takes 14 bitches for a major.

In PA, it takes 9 dogs for a 3 pt major, 13 for a 4 pt major, and 20 for a 5 pt major. It generally takes more bitches to make a major.

For fun, I looked up the points and awards for my Carly's sire. He got a 4 point major back in 2004, in Biloxi at the Coliseum. There were 26 dogs.

Just find your region...

Oh, and points are determined by the number of dogs/bitches that actually competed, in your region, during the previous year.

Hoping for her first litter in fall 2014.
