Specialty Show
 
 
 
What is a Specialty Show?
Specialty dog shows are restricted to dogs of a specific breed or to varieties of one breed.  Nutmeg's specialty show is for German Shorthaired Pointers only.  Dog shows (conformation events) are intended to evaluate breeding stock.  The size of these events ranges form large all-breed shows with over 3,000 dogs entered, to small local specialty club shows featuring a specific breed.  The dog's conformation (overall appearance and structure), movement and type are judged.  For more detailed information about dog shows, please see the AKC's Beginners Guide to Dog Shows and rules.
 

Where are the Specialty Shows Held?

The Nutmeg specialty show is held in conjunction with the Pioneer Valley Kennel Club at Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA at their annual August dog show.  Though the weather can be hot, we like the outdoor venue.  Specialty shows offer the chance to meet and socialize with other shorthair owners.  We have Puppy and Veteran Sweepstakes, trophies, a raffle of various dog-related items, and a hospitality table.  Directions to Campus   Find show details at InfoDog.com

Supported Entry Show
 

What is a Supported Entry Show?
A supported entry dog show is a mini specialty show that it is held in conjunction with an "all breed" show. These shows generally bring in more entries, thus usually making the show a "major", and all dogs need to win two "majors" to finish their championship title.  For more detailed information about dog shows, please see the AKC's Beginners Guide to Dog Shows and rules.
 
Where are the Supported Entry Shows Held?

This year (2015) Nutmeg GSP Club will be sponsoring two supported entry shows.  The Supported Entry Show on March 14th is being held in conjunction with the North East Sporting Dog Association in West Springfield, MA at the Mallory Building of the Big E Fairgrounds. The supported entry show on June 6th is being held in conjunction with the Greenwich Kennel Club in Norwalk, CT. Find show details at InfoDog.com
