Invitational Dog Shows

Invitational dog shows are not open to entry through normal methods.  The only way to get your dog entered into an invitational show is to campaign it and be ranked within the top eligible show dogs in your breed.

Owners do not have a choice regarding whether their dog is entered in an invitational show.  If your dog meets the criteria for entry in the show, it is automatically entered.  You are not charged an entry fee for invitational shows and the condition of your dog is not impacted.

The largest invitational dog show on ShowDog.Com is the ShowDog.Com National Championship.  In order to obtain entry in this show, you must have a dog under four months old ranked within the top-15 of your breed.

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.
