Entering Shows

To enter your dog in shows, all you have to do is click on the Enter In Shows button that will appear on the information page for any dogs you own, are over 14 days, and are named.

If your dog is over 120 days old, you won't be able to enter it in conformation shows (except breed national specialties). They can only enter obedience. We automatically retire dogs from the show string after four months to allow new dogs to win the shows.

If a show doesn't get at least ten entries it will be cancelled. In the event of a show cancellation, all entries will be withdrawn and you will not be charged for the entries.

You are not able to enter your dog in invitational shows. For more information on obtaining entry into invitational shows, please see the relevant help topic.

Did you know?
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.
