AKC FSS Open Show

FSS (Foundation Stock Service) Open Shows are informal AKC sanctioned events. They allow owners and their dogs of FSS & Miscellaneous Class breeds a chance to gain the ring experience of a conformation dog show in a relaxed and inviting environment. While no points may be earned towards a Championship, Certificate of Merit points may be earned. FSS Open Shows also allow clubs, judges, and stewards to gain the experience needed for licensed events. FSS Open Shows are run much like a match on the day of the event. Miscellaneous Class breeds will be considered equivalent to a Group as will the FSS breeds. The winner of the Miscellaneous Class & FSS Groups will go on to compete Best in FSS Open Show.
