 The Competition

Dalmatian of the year is the North of England Dalmatian Club's prestigious competition, held in a match format for lucky Dalmatians who have qualified throughout the previous show year.

There are four separate competitions Best Dog, Best Bitch, Best Puppy and Best Veteran. To qualify for the Best Dog or Best Bitch competition the Dalmatian must have been awarded at least one Kennel Club Challenge Certificate during the previous show year.
To qualify for the Best Puppy competition the Dalmatian must have received Best Puppy In Breed at one of the various Championship Shows throughout the year or any of the Dalmatian Club Open Shows.
Exhibits have qualified for the Veteran of the Year event by winning one or more Best Veteran in Breed awards at a Championship Show at which Challenge Certificates were on offer and the Society awarded Best Veteran in Breed, during 2017, or a Best Veteran in Show award at one of the Open Shows run in 2017 by the various Dalmatian Clubs in the United Kingdom.

There are a number of rounds within the competition with Dalmatians in direct competition with each other to be chosen by at least two of the three appointed judges to make it through to the next round. The decision of each Judge is kept secret, as is in fact the identity of Judges right up until the competition starts.

The Puppy and Veteran competition is held as a mixed sex competition with the winner of the final round announced as Puppy or Veteran of the Year. The winner of the final round of each of the adult competitions is deemed Best Dog / Best Bitch, they then face each other in one final round with the winner announced as Dalmatian of the Year and the runner up announced as Best Opposite Sex.
