What is conformation?
In conformation shows the dog is judged on how well it conforms to the standard published by the American Kennel Club. AKC Group Pictures can be seen on the AKC website.

  1. Not sure if it was this club or the other that shares your weekend. But I had my dogs eye done at this show in June. I have unfortunately lost the form. And was wondering if you could give the name and phone number of the doctor that did them so I may contact them and ask for a copy. Thanks so much.

    1. I am sorry that I have not responded sooner, but with the holidays and school starting back up, I just got behind. It was actually the Acadiana Kennel Club that had the eye clinic. You can contact Margaret Tauzin at
