  Green Star System
 

The number of Green Stars required for Championship title is 7, to be gained under 7 different judges. The dog must be graded excellent, or in the case of a Puppy Very Promising,to challenge for the Green Star. Grading Cards will be issued by the Irish Kennel Club. Champions are eligible to challenge for the Green Star. One Green Star must be won after the dog reaches the age of 15 months. There will be no enhancement for Group wins.

Points under the old system would be converted as follows;

Dogs having won;
1 – 5 points count as 1 Green Star
6 – 11 points count as 2 Green Stars
12 – 18 points count as 3 Green Stars
19 – 24 points count as 4 Green Stars
25 – 31 points count as 5 Green Stars
32 – 38 points count as 6 Green Stars

Dogs having won 38 points or more under the old Green Star System must win 1 Green Star under the new system to be awarded the title of Champion.

The title of Annual Champion in each breed is awarded to the dog with the highest number of Green Stars won in the calendar year. In the event of a tie the award is made to the dog with the greater number of Best Of Breed wins.

It is proposed to implement this system from January 2007 with a review in 2009.
