Why show at IABCA conformation shows? What makes The International Dog Shows different?

  • All Dogs receive WRITTEN CRITIQUES from top American, Canadian, and other foreign judges.
  • We strive for a relaxed, friendly, and flexible atmosphere. We get a lot of new exhibitors and they have a great time learning at our shows, getting advice and asking questions from our judges.
  • Dogs can earn International IABCA Titles with judges licensed from multiple countries (USA, Canada, Argentina, Serbia, Columbia, Sweden, Australia, Germany, and more).
  • Dogs are judged individually against the breed standard for their title points, not against other dogs (dogs can earn titles even if they are the only dog in the show of their breed).
  • A two or three judge panel judges each Best in Show category.
  • And much more!
