They are going to have fun! The YVKC dog show is back in Billings


You’ll have a good time woofering your paws at Yellowstone Valley Kennel Club Dog Show this week! (Okay, I’ll stop the puns!)

At the Montana Pavilion in Metra Park, you can take part in the dog show from June 23 to 26, FREE for the public.

What shows are going on?

ICYMI, these shows are conformation shows. What is conformation? Well, officially, it is:

the act of conforming Where produce compliance

Basically, dogs are judged on how well they conform to the perceived “standard” of their breed. Why? The American Kennel Club (AKC) says this:

Because the closer a dog’s appearance is to the breed standard, the better that dog’s ability to produce puppies that meet the standard. This is also the reason why mixed breeds and neutered or neutered Thoroughbreds are not eligible to compete in conformation.

Now that we’ve overcome that hurdle, you can expect to see dogs of all breeds performing actions that are stereotypical of their breeds.
