This is a Point score to reward Weimaraners competing in ANKC sporting events. To be eligible for competition in any ANKC event you must be a member the ANKC (WA - DogsWest), and have your Weimaraner registered with the ANKC - Either Full registration (Pedigree Papers) or Associate Registration (unproven parentage i.e., rescue dogs or dogs not issued with papers).

This is the first attempt by the Weimaraner Club to run a point score. If anyone has any feedback that they feel would be useful please contact the point score officer. All suggestions will be considered. All ANKC regulations have been reviewed and the point system has been created based upon factors such has how many passes are required to obtain a title and if it is necessary to win to obtain a title. In cases where one pass gives you a title (e.g. Endurance Test or Utility Gundog Test) only points for the title are rewarded (as per point allocation below)
