What is the National Specialty?
The National Specialty is the Chow Chow Club, Inc.'s annual dog show. Chow Chows from all over the U.S. and Canada compete in conformation and obedience at this premier event. Educational seminars and events just for fun are also held at the National, along with the CCCI's annual membership meeting. The location of the National Specialty rotates across the U.S. by time zones each year. Regional Chow clubs and host groups apply several years in advance to host the show. The show draws hundreds of Chow Chows and spectators from all over the world. You don't have to be a member of the CCCI to attend the National Specialty. The National is an excellent opportunity for you to see Chows of the highest quality, meet breeders, make new friends, and learn more about our breed.
