What is a dog show?

A dog show is an event where dogs are judged on their appearance, so a beauty contest for dogs. A judge judges the breed according to the breed standard that is established for each breed, or according to the ideal image of the breed.

There are several types of dog shows, this can range from a small one-day show to a large (inter)national show of several days. At national exhibitions there are national championship prizes awarded, known as CAC’s  (Certificat d’Aptitude au Championnat). At international exhibitions there are also international championship prizes awarded, knows as the CACIB’s (Certificat d’Aptitude au Championnat internationale de Beauté).
