"Almost all BREED CLUBS hold "Specialty shows" on a regular basis, either fun matches or regular shows sponsored by the AKC or the UKC. A BREED CLUB is a regional or national club which is specific to a certain breed. To find information about your Breed clubs and when they hold their shows, check out, again, the pages at or even conduct a general search on the web...You might be surprised to find how many states have Specialty clubs with your breed. Specialty shows are especially enjoyable to the dog fancier since they have ONLY the Specialty breed entered at the Specialty show...." This is only a small portion of an extensive article written by a long time breeder and dog show enthusiast. It describes in great detail how to go about finding dog shows to enter. Not only that, it leads you to a wonderful link to purchase tee shirts and articles of clothing with wonderful images such as the one shown above (especially at this time of year!!)
