National Specialties

A National Specialty show for each breed is held once a month. Any show age dog may be entered and the entry fee is $0. Dogs over 120 days of age may be entered and compete in the Veterans class.

Only Best in Specialty Show earns a payout and it is based on the number of entries for the breed in the past 30 days. However any placement at a National Specialty show will contribute to your prestige.
