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 two largest American dog shows after Westminster are the National Dog Show (which is televised on Thanksgiving Day by NBC, usually after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade) and the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.
