Breeders’ Showcase

BreedersShowcase2016
We have combined our resources with Purina Pro Plan to give breeders the recognition they deserve. Each year we hold a Breeders’ Showcase competition (following the Saturday Best in Show Judging) to showcase your breeding program. Competition begins at the group level and consists of 2 or more dogs (and/or bitches) of the same breed with at least one breeder of all dogs in common. The exhibits may be handled by anyone. The entrants need not be entered in the regular classes of the SBKC, however they must be of an AKC Recognized Breed and registered in accordance with AKC rules regarding AKC Sanctioned shows. All monetary prizes will be paid by check to the common breeder of record. A separate entry form for this competition will be included in the Premium List or available from Jack Bradshaw Dog Show Superintendents. During the Breeders’ Showcase competition, we invite our exhibitors to enjoy “Dinner at the Dog Show”, compliments of our many patrons.
