This is a process of "elimination". Dogs first compete against others of their own breed. One dog in each breed is named Best of Breed and goes on to compete at the Group level. There are seven Groups. The First place dog in each Group (Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting, and Herding) goes on to compete for Best in Show. One is chosen BEST IN SHOW and this dog at the end of the show remains undefeated. Our 2022 & 2023 shows were held on Thursday and Friday (June 2/3rd, June 1/2)) at the Georgia international Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, GA.
