The GSDCA National Specialty show is held annually, typically in October of every year. German Shepherds from across the country compete in conformation, obedience, herding and agility events. The top dogs in each event are given the titles of "Victor or Victrix", ie. Herding Victor, Obedience Victrix, etc.
In conformation, the top male and female are given the titles of Grand Victor and Grand Victrix. The judge can also award dogs he or she feels to be of particular merit with the award of "Select".
