Specialty show

A specialty show is a dog show which reviews a single breed, unlike other dog shows, particularly conformation shows, which are generally referred to as "all-breed" because they are open to all breeds recognized by the sponsoring kennel club.

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.

Examples of specialty shows include:

  • The regional specialty shows, and the national specialty show, sponsored by the Golden Retriever Club of America[1]
  • The regional specialty shows, and the national specialty show, sponsored by the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America[2]
  • National Specialty Show, American Maltese Association[3]
  • Border Terrier Show Results in the U.K.[4]
