Why Go to a Dog Show?
You will see all sizes and shapes. A large part of the show is a beauty contest judged by people who have studied dogs for years.
The judge is judging how close the dog comes to the Canadian Kennel Club breed standard. There are also obedience trials, rally obedience trials, agility and scent hurdling.
Please wait and speak to a breeder after the competition in the grooming or benching area. If you are in the benching area well before judging ask if the exhibitor has time to speak to you, and always ask before you touch a dog.
