More about CACIB Shows

Do you see your dog as being an International Beauty Champion?  I bet you do!!
Well folks, a new title signifying exactly that has become available through the ANKC’s Associate Membership of the FCI. This title of FCI International Champion (C.I.B.) is now available in Australia. 
To achieve it you will need to receive four CACIB awards in a minimum of two Australian States, under three different Judges, from at least three different FCI Member countries. Have I aroused your attention? Then read on.
Day 1 of the 2018 Royal Canin International Spring Fair will offer CACIB and Reserve CACIB awards to all breeds recognised by FCI. These will be IN ADDITION to your regular Challenge Certificate awards, so you have double the reason to get yourself along to the Friday show of Spring Fair this year.
A very unique feature of this CACIB Show, will be that all breeds are to be judged in the ten FCI Groups, so many of you will find that your breed is up against some quite different opposition to the usual competition. You can check out these Groupings in the Spring Fair Show advertisement in your June Gazette. It is naturally also available at the Spring Fair website: https://springfair.com.au/.
One thing you will need to understand is that CACIB’s are only available to exhibits which are:

• Graded by the Judge as being Excellent, and
• A winner of their Class
After judging all Male classes in Breed, the Judge will firstly (at their discretion) award the usual Challenge and Reserve Challenge Certificate. If the Challenge Winner is eligible for a CACIB, it will automatically receive it. Likewise, a Reserve Challenge winner, if eligible, will receive a Reserve CACIB, but if the Challenge winner was not eligible for a CACIB (e.g. too young), then an eligible Reserve Challenge winner will receive the CACIB and the Judge would then consider a Reserve CACIB from the remaining eligible exhibits. The process is repeated for bitches, however, Best of Breed, as usual, remains a competition between the two Challenge winners.
Group and In-Show Judging will be done in the following sequence; Best in Group/Show 4,3,2,1, Baby, Puppy 4,3,2,1, Junior, Intermediate, Open, Champion;  however, note that Best 1,2,3,4 are automatic for their respective Classes.
A very distinguished panel of International Judges has been assembled to adjudicate your entries over the three days of Spring Fair 2018 as well as at a number of Breed Specialty shows being conducted on Thursday 30 August. Our Judges hail from Canada, Ireland, Japan, India, Belgium and Malaysia and bring with them a wealth of international experience in judging, both CACIB and National shows across the globe.
Saturday and Sunday return to the format to which you are all accustomed and I am confident that the usual wonderful entry from all States will be received, such is the popularity of Spring Fair. The organising Committee have offered Sweepstakes across the weekend in eight separate categories, with a Breeder’s Team Event of 4 dogs being featured at the Sunday Show.
For Spring Fair 2018, Dogs NSW has launched its new online entry portal: https://www.showdogsnsw.org.au/ which you enter with your usual Online Services login and password. Try it, it is just so easy.
