Class, titles, competentions
It would be pointless to judge all dogs registred on the exhibition at the same time. Exhibitions are divided not only according to breed and sex, but also by age. This determines the class. There are also special classes where age is not important, but whether it is a working dog or champion. The correct age is calculated by age of the dog at the day of show. Even if one day is puppy and the other day juniores. The choosing of class can be also a tactic.
The show is about winning too. Show titles. Not on every show you can get the same title. Depends on its type .
By exhibitions are also competitions, in which you register before, as for the exhibition itself, using the application. It is best couple, or breeders group. Some are only for the breed winners and are for free, without registration.
But probably the biggest event in the world of exhibitions specially designed for Czechoslovakian wolfdogs are Club show and European show for CsW.
Pocals for the winners on Club show in Nitra, autumn, 2010
By application for shows you fill the class in which the dog will competite. Dogs are in classes by age in the day of show. In each class are judged separate females and males, or by championates, training exams,...:
