All-Breed and Specialty Shows

In an all-breed show, dogs compete against other dogs of the same breed in breed classes to win BOB (Best of Breed) and then against dogs of different breeds to win BIG (Best In Group) and BIS (Best In Show).

In specialty shows, only one breed may be entered and dogs of that breed compete against each other to win BISS (Best In Specialty Show).
