SHOT 2/18/08 11:40:59 AM - Portraits of various dogs at the 13th Annual Rocky Mountain Cluster dog show at the National Western Complex in Denver, Co. The competition features some of the top show dogs in the country and showcases close to 200 different breeds. Some 3,500 dogs and some of the top handlers in the country compete at the event which follows on the heels of Westminster. In a conformation show, judges familiar with specific dog breeds evaluate individual dogs for how well they conform to published breed standards. Conformation shows are also referred to as dog shows or breed shows. Conformation shows are typically held under the auspices of a national kennel club. At the highest levels are Championship or all-breed shows, which have separate classes for the majority of breeds.(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2008)
