“Conformation” is the official name for “dog shows.” While they may seem glamorous, the true purpose of conformation showing is to evaluate breeding stock. The dog’s conformation—his overall appearance and structure—is an indication of the dog’s ability to produce quality purebred puppies, and that is what is being judged in the ring.

The American Brussels Griffon National Specialty is the premier event in the world of the Brussels Griffon. It is an event where all who love the breed, whether enjoying Brussels Griffons as pets, competing with them in the show ring, or partnering with them in all activities, come together.

Members and fellow fanciers of this breed appreciate the service and dedication that the Specialty Show coordinating committee and volunteers provide every year to hold this event. Planning and hosting a National Specialty is truly a group effort.
