Entry Cancellation Fees
There is a $25 fee for cancelling an entry less than one-hour before the date of the show. This is done in order to prevent users from stacking a show and cancelling all entries to avoid other dogs.
There is a $5 fee for cancelling an entry that has a non-owner handler assigned to it. This prevents users from tying up handlers with entries they have no intention of showing.

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.
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
