World Dog Show
The World Dog Show is a Fédération Cynologique Internationale-sanctioned, four-to-six-day long international dog show, held yearly since 1971. It has been called the most important dog show in the world. The World Show includes agility, obedience, junior handler, conformation, and other events and demonstrations. Dogs who win in any category are awarded the title "World Champion". The show places a special emphasis on rare and unusual dog breeds. It is one of the largest dog shows in the world, with shows attracting upwards of 10,000 entrants. It is held in a different country each year.
Some people feel that a win at the World Dog Show is worth more, reputation-wise, than the same win at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Entries in the World Show are from Fédération Cynologique Internationale member clubs, and non-member clubs (such as the American Kennel Club) by invitation.
