Show Entry Fees and Payouts
Each show has a different entry fee that is determined by the show promoter. The show promoter also gets 20% of the show payouts. If you would like to promote your own shows, you can find out more information by CLICKING HERE.
60% of each entry fee is paid out to the portion of each entry fee that goes to payouts is divided up based on the structure below...
40% - Class Winners
16% to 1st in Class
12% to 2nd in Class
8% to 3rd in Class
4% to 4th in Class
30% - Breed Winners**
12% to Best in Breed
9% to 2nd in Breed
6% to 3rd in Breed
3% to 4th in Breed
20% - Group Winners
8% to Best in Group
6% to 2nd in Group
4% to 3rd in Group
2% to 4th in Group
10% - Show Winners
4% to Best in Show
3% to 2nd in Show
2% to 3rd in Show

**Breed winner percentages are doubled in single breed shows.
For example, let's consider a German Shepherd Dog that won Best in Show at a show with 13 dogs in his class, 34 German Shepherd Dogs, 91 dogs in the herding group, and 652 dogs in the entire show with an entry fee of $30/dog. This dog would receive...
1st in Class = 13 entries * $30/entry * 60% of entry fee * 16% = $37.44
Best in Breed = 34 entries * $30/entry * 60% of entry fee * 12% = $73.44
Best in Group = 91 entries * $30/entry * 60% of entry fee * 8% = $131.04
Best in Show = 652 entries * $30/entry * 60% of entry fee * 4% = $469.44
Total Payout = $37.44 + $73.44 + $131.04 + $469.44 = $711.36
Despite this example, entering shows IS NOT a good way to make money on ShowDog.Com. The competition is fierce and only 60% of all entry fees is paid back to the owners.
