The Breed Standard
Each dog breed has been defined by a standard which is set by organizations such as the American Kennel Club (A.K.C.) and the Canadian Kennel Club (C.K.C.). It is the role of judges at conformation dog shows to determine which dog most closely conforms to the breed standard. At each show, winners gain points toward their championship titles, thus helping to prove the dog to be excellent breeding stock.
