Breed Conformation

Dog shows and dog exhibitions have been around as long as dogs have been bred. In most organizations, they are simply a beauty contest. 

In our organization this is not true.  In our breed shows, (we also call them conformation shows), the judges are looking for a dog’s breed value.  Judges must use their vast knowledge to evaluate each dog against the written standard because the “form for function” is very important for the development of the German Shepherd Dog Breed.
