GSDCC Inc. National Specialty Show
The German Shepherd Dog Club of Canada has one major show in the fall to end the show season. This is a very large exciting specialty for conformation and obedience and sometimes Agility and Rally with an average of 200-300 GSD's entered from all over Canada, the USA and sometimes Bermuda and even Germany. This is the show to see!!
This is the "Show of Shows" as all the work and winning done during the show season is basically capitalized on here as this is where most of the titles of those top dogs are won.
There are opening ceremonies and usually demonstrations during intermissions. There is a video set up to catch all these amazing dogs on tape then tapes are sold to allow breeders to preview the quality from all over and maybe choose that special male they might want to breed their female to in the future. There is a camera shoot for all the winners to keep those prestigious moments forever. There are some beautiful perpetual trophies that stay with the club and grow in size over the years as the names of winners are put on their perspective trophies.
For the first time in many years, the show will held outdoors in the beautiful city of Stratford, Ontario.
The Festival Inn will be hosting the show, there are spacious outdoor grounds for Conformation, Obedience, Agility, TEC and possibly more. The rings for showing are almost the size of a skating rink and it is amazing to watch the stamina of both dogs and handlers going around this ring as they are being judged. The double handlers are a show onto themselves and something to see.
There are booths to shop at, a silent auction, a large trophy table, banners flying and ribbons galore. A cafeteria, cafe and vending machines are available for all your needs.
