Showing Your Neo

Congratulations! You have purchased a registered purebred Neapolitan Mastiff. You have reviewed the AKC breed standard and feel confident he is the ideal specimen. The best way to find out just how “ideal” your Neapolitan Mastiff is to the breed standard is to enter a dog show. Any Neapolitan Mastiff registered with the American Kennel Club that is 6 months or older on the day of the show and is eligible for classes offered in the premium list is able to be entered at a dog show.

A Beginners Guide To Dog Shows
The AKC offers a wide variety of resources to assist everyone from the first-time puppy buyer to the experienced dog fancier. Many publications are free, including the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. All exhibitors are required to be familiar with these rules prior to entering a dog show.
