The 2021 Sunshine Winter Sieger will be held at the Escambia County Equestrian Center in Pensacola, FL. This show will be in a covered arena on packed dirt. We will be setting up on Wed afternoon so if you plan on setting up early, please wait until we begin our setup first. The Show Roster will be updated periodically as entries come in and the Show Schedule will be available within a few days of the show closing. You can enter our show online or via fax or mail (for a printable show entry form, click here). Would you like to help us hand out fliers? We'd really appreciate it. Just click here. We can also give you fliers. Send an e-mail to info@iabca.com and we'll ship you a box of fliers.

Why show at IABCA conformation shows? What makes The International Dog Shows different?

  • All Dogs receive WRITTEN CRITIQUES from top American, Canadian, and other foreign judges.
  • We strive for a relaxed, friendly, and flexible atmosphere. We get a lot of new exhibitors and they have a great time learning at our shows, getting advice and asking questions from our judges.
  • Dogs can earn International IABCA Titles with judges licensed from multiple countries (USA, Canada, Argentina, Serbia, Columbia, Sweden, Australia, Germany, and more).
  • Dogs are judged individually against the breed standard for their title points, not against other dogs (dogs can earn titles even if they are the only dog in the show of their breed).
  • A two or three judge panel judges each Best in Show category.
  • And much more!
