The Delaney Rating System compares performances of dogs in AKC all breed obedience competition. This system was originally devised by Kent Delaney, a highly respected obedience and breed judge.  The philosophy of the Delaney Rating System is that teams placing in each class are the best performers and comparisons of teams should only include these participants.  Therefore this system only ranks dogs that place first through fourth in Open and Utility classes.  Novice class dogs are not included in this system.


Among teams that place, one point is earned for each dog defeated in a given class.  For example in a class of twenty competing teams the first place winner would earn 19 points as it defeated this number of other dogs.  The team in second place would receive 18 points, the third place team would earn 17 points, and the fourth place team would earn16 points.  After points in each class are determined they are compiled across a given competition year.


Ratings published by Front & Finish® list the top ten dogs ranking highest across all breeds (Top Ten All Breed), the top ten dogs ranking highest within their respective groups (Top Ten By Group), and the top ten dogs ranking highest by breed (Top Ten By Breed).  Dogs must earn a minimum of four points in a given year to be listed and all ties for a given position are reported.  Dogs are listed with the recognized AKC titles they received during the competition year and they may not reflect a dog’s current titles at the time of publication.
