Conformation is a doggie beauty contest. Dogs are judged according to the  Breed Standard.  The class male and the class female who best exemplify the breed standard are awarded the points.
Fifteen points earn a Championship.
​The points must include two majors - a situation in which the dog bests a pre-determined number of other dogs for the win
