A call name is a shortened version of your dog’s registered name. The call name space on ShowDog.com can also be used to help you manage your kennel. You can put “Needs sessions” or “Needs showing” in the space, or, if you like to use an evaluator to get a percentage for your dog, you can put that information in the call name space. Use your imagination and you can make the call name feature work for you.

There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
Judges are generally certified to judge one or several breeds, usually in the same group, but a few "all-breed" judges have the training and experience to judge large numbers of breeds.
