What is a PCA Regional Specialty?

Reg2013 BOB

Those of you that have experienced the "Greatest Poodle Show on Earth", also known as Poodle Club of America National Specialty, know it as a competition on the level of a Poodle "Super Bowl." The national specialty provides an educational experience for everyone; it is a chance to see dogs and people you have only read about; it is a chance to ask questions and get the right answers; it is an opportunity to find that special mentor; it is a poodle shopping heaven; and most of all, it is a show for everyone that loves the beauty and the brains of our breed.

For those of you that have not had the experience of attending the national specialty: a regional Specialty is a way for Poodle Club of America and one of the 48 Affiliate Clubs to bring this experience to you on a smaller scale. Nothing takes the place of the National, but a Regional will certainly whet your appetite for the "real thing."

Regionals happen only once a year, when clubs are willing to join forces to host.
