For 3rd grade, the top 10 placed combinations (= handler & dog) per round will be invited to take part in the Individual Grand Final. For 2nd grade, the winners of each round will be invited to take part in de Individual Grand Final. This means that the maximum number of participants at this final will be 66.

The title „BCC2018 Champion“ will be awarded to the winner of the Individual Grand Final.

National teams will compete in the National Team Final on Sunday. Each national team consists of the three best 3rd Grade combinations and three best 2nd Grade combinations from that country. The combinations qualifying for the Team Final are determined by the combined results of the 3 agility courses run on Friday and Saturday, per Grade. If there are countries with less than 3 participants in 3rd Grade and/or less than 3 participanst in 2nd Grade, the organization will combine countries into ad hoc country teams.It is not allowed to replace the qualified combinations in a country team, f.i. in case of injury.
