This sport is available to all breeds.
In conformation shows, known as simply the “Show” sport on Furry Paws, canine competitors are analyzed by judges who are very familiar with that specific breed of dog. The dogs are judged on how well they match the published breed standards. At the highest level of dog showing, they have separate classes for the majority of breeds. Also, the show can be breed or group specific. The competitions are usually organized by a breed club.
Dog show judges try to pick out the dog which shows the best physical and mental characteristics of the breed. This can be challenging for the judges, partly because the watching crowd will cheer and applaud their favorite entrants, making the judge’s decision more difficult as they have to remain free from bias.
Dogs compete at dog shows to try and earn points toward the title of “Champion.” Every time a dog wins or places at a show it will gain points towards that title. It can be a particularly difficult thing to achieve.
There are many prestigious dog shows but biggest is most likely Crufts. Showing is restricted to pedigrees only. However, there are many local dog classes which mixed breeds can enter.
