An easy-to-use tool for exhibitors at conformation dog shows in the US. Calculates champion and grand champion points available by breed and division. View the latest point schedules. Works for all eligible breeds. Helpful links also available at your fingertips.
ShowCalc was updated to work with the 2019 AKC point schedule effective May 15, 2019. The app was also updated to handle the new rule that determines if Best of Winners will receive a point. "If neither sex had sufficient competitors to qualify for a point and the sum total of the sexes meets or exceeds the number required for a point in its sex, Best of Winners will receive 1 point."
* Minor corrections were made to the database to ensure the correct point schedule is displayed for a couple of breeds.

not updated for 2018! **Update required reload**
This is a really easy to use app to calculate points. But as of May 25, 2018 it has not been updated with the new points schedule that went into affect May 16th.
UPDATED review: after the 2018 points update, I had to delete the app and reload to get to work correctly. At first it showed zero points required in all states, then reload brought up the new points schedule.
I love this app and can’t imagine trying to calculate points without it. The one thing I really wish it would hold the number of dogs. It holds the breed and the state but every time you open it you have to type in the breed counts again.
UPDATE: I loved this ap. Until the points were wrong. The app calculates WD is BOB (WB is BOS) completely wrong. I thought I had a 4pt major. AKC says it was only 3. So I have a lovely $40 photo that says new champion that I can’t use. I didn’t enter a few shows thinking I was finished. Not happy. The thing that makes me most upset is the developer won’t answer their email. Also, the new 2018 points are out and no update to the ap. (This has nothing to do with why I didn’t get 4pts). Overall this should be an invaluable tool but it’s not reliable.
Nice and simple. I am chasing a GCH on my dog and this is very helpful ringside to keep up with the actual number of dogs that showed up. The only thing it's missing is helping determining "defeats", i.e., did my dog going BOS or Select defeat any champions. It's not always that obvious to me, especially when I'm showing - sometimes it goes so fast I can't figure out what happened. It's a *minor* thing, but would make the app absolutely perfect.
