What is Special About the Bouvier Specialty?

There are two kinds of specialties. They can be either "independent" (a separate show) or "designated classes" (where a breed's specialty is held as part of an all-breed show).

A specialty traditionally draws more participants – a few years ago, there were more than 40 Bouvier entries. So a specialty show provides the opportunity to see more Bouviers and the potential of more points if an entrant does well. For independent specialties, the club selects the judges, while for designated shows it is the all-breed show’s sponsoring club that selects the judges and pays for facility and judging expenses.

The club does have some expenses - special prizes for conformation classes and High in Trial rosettes for Bouvs competing int the regular obedience. classes. Attending a Bouv specialty allows watching the best Bouvs go head to tail in the ring. 


Sponsors for Trophies and planning for the 2018 Specialty


It's time to enter and reserve grooming for the CBdFC specialty July 21 & 22 with Portland Kennel Club. We're hoping to have a Bouvier area for anyone who wants to be part of the group. PKC rules say: "Exhibitors wishing to groom together must submit requests in the same envelope." Contact Cheryl Calm at calmbouv@gmail.com, for specifics about getting grooming space, and she will send in one check.  Entries can be made on line at infodog.com.

We hope to see you there! There will be a club lunch potluck and general meeting for Bouvier lovers so come by, visit and watch if you're not entering. There is lots going on – conformation, obedience, rally, and many vendors. We will post times once the judging schedule is up.
