2024 National Specialty

BCOA holds an annual National Specialty Show whose location rotates from region to region and of course there are different judges each year. View the list of locations and list of judges.

Come to Washington State:
June 1—June 8, 2024

In addition to conformation classes (including Futurity and Sweepstakes events), there will be ASFA and AKC lure trials as well as straight-racing (LGRA), JC and QC tests. Also included are obedience, rally, triathlon (combined scores for conformation, lure coursing and obedience) and junior showmanship.

The 2024 field events will be held at Sheriff's Training Center, 6011 N Chase Rd Newman Lake, WA 99025

There will be a Borzoi art auction, costume contest, pee wee competition, beginner puppy competition, health seminars, membership education seminars, and the annual membership meeting. In addition, the annual banquet will take place, where awards for the year's top dogs are presented and the next year's national specialty details are released.

Thanks to BCOA and its hard-working members on the National committee, each national specialty promises a lot of fun and competition and the viewing of quality dogs and their abilities. For further information e-mail the Show Chair
