CONFORMATION

The Newfoundland Club of Victoria Inc. conducts activities which assist new members to acquire knowledge and a better understanding of the sport of dogs.

To help you understand how a dog show is run, here are the different categories for dogs to be shown.

 

A dog show is divided into several classes which are based on either age of exhibit or prior qualifications.
The following are the specifications of classes approved for show fixtures.


Where separate classes are provided for each sex, the class numbers for bitches are followed by the letter 'a', i.e. Baby Puppy Bitch Class 1a.

  • Class 1  Baby Puppy - for dogs of three and under six months of age
