Welcome to IABCA & The International Dog Shows

We're making adjustments to cope with the pandemic and keep our crew and exhibitors as safe as we can.

For the time being, shows will only be open to enter a few weeks before the event. We'll have more details soon. We'll be back to holding shows in August. Stay healthy and we'll see you soon.



  • Entries are limited (limit depends opn venue), first come-first serve
  • Entries will be accepted ONLY from 3 weeks prior to the show until 8 days prior to the show.
  • NO LATE ENTRIES will be accepted.
  • Mailed in entries MUST BE POSTMARKED by 14 days before the show or they will not be accepted.
  • Please communicate via email (, we will not be rehiring most of our laid-off staff until closer to the show.
  • Stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms such as fever, cough, rash, or sore throat.
  • Face Masks must be worn at all times, except while in your set-up. Everyone twelve and above must abide by this rule. Staff, judges, and ring stewards will be wearing masks. Masks must be worn while in the ring.
  • Social distancing of 6 feet separation must be maintained.
  • Wash hands or use sanitizer just prior to entering the ring and upon exiting (hand sanitizer will be available around show grounds).
  • RULE CHANGE: NO DAY OF SHOW adding allowed. No changes or additions can be made at the show. Any changes to your entry must be made before show closing (eight days before the show). Express show will be available to add at the show (Saturday only and only for dogs entered in all 4 shows already).
  • We will not hand out armbands at the front desk. You will pick up your armband ringside at your first show for the weekend.
  • We will not be handing out folders (or participation certificates). Orange cards and critiques will be issued from each ring at time of judging and given to the exhibitor at that time (no need to bring any paperwork to the ring with you).
  • You must follow established ring procedures for entrance and exit (each ring will now have 1 entry point and a different exit point).
  • When finished showing you should leave the ring area.
  • You must familiarize yourself with all signage and on-site instructions.
  • Blow dryers are not allowed on the show grounds
  • A waiver must be signed on the day of the show and turned it at the front desk before your dog can show.
  • Temperatures of all attendees will be taken prior to the dog being shown.  



At The International Dog Shows:

  • Judges give each dog a written critique. Have you ever wondered what the judge was thinking in the ring?  Now you can know.

  • We bring International to you.  Judges from USA, Canada, Australia, England, and all over the world are brought in to our shows.  Many of our American judges have judged all over the world and bring that international experience to our shows.

  • Dogs can earn International titles.

  • Each dog is judged against the breed standard for it's title points.  Great dogs can earn great titles regardless of competition. This leads to a more friendly and less competitive atmosphere.

  • We strive for a relaxed atmosphere with friendly crew and fellow exhibitors. It is our desire to take the stress out of showing dogs and have a fun and informative day for all.

  • And much more!
