WYSIWYG Welsh Terriers
Conformation Showing/Breed Clubs
Conformation Showing

This is what most people think of when they hear the
words "dog show."  In a conformation show, each dog
competes not only against other dogs, but also against a
written standard of perfection for its breed which the judge
has memorized and is comparing each dog to as he
judges it.  The example of each breed that comes closest
to the breed standard wins Best of Breed.  Depending on
the number of dogs entered in a given show, there may be
many other categories of winners before Best of Breed is
awarded. The dog selected as Best of Breed goes on to
compete in Best of Group and, if it wins there, Best in
Show.  At every level, dogs are judged on points of
similarity to the standard for their breeds.

The purpose of conformation competition is to help
breeders choose the best dogs to produce the next
generations of their breeds. Only intact (not spayed or
neutered) AKC-registered dogs who are excellent
examples of their breed in both physical characteristics
and temperament should be entered in a conformation
show.  If you want to compete in
AKC conformation
showing, you need to acquire your dog from a breeder
who understands what you are looking for and who is
personally involved in the sport.

Conformation titles are offered also by the
United Kennel
Club and the Union Cynologie International whose shows
are sponsored in the United States by the
International
All-Breed Canine Association of America - IABCA.
Breed Clubs

It's fun and educational to be in touch with other
people who own and love your breed.

We are members of two Welsh terrier clubs, the
Welsh Terrier Club of America (WTCA) and the
Welsh Terrier Club of Northern Illinois (WTCNI).
