International All Breed Canine Association (IABCA)

The International All Breed Canine Association is located in the USA and provides conformation titles to various dog breeds, both rare and common. Many of the breeds are recognized by the AKC and some are not.

The IABCA is not an FCI recognized club, and its titles are not recognized in any other country in the world. The IABCA does import judges from other countries world wide, and the judges provide written critiques of each dog entered, just like a European styled show.

Showing with the IABCA can be fun and good experience for both dog and handler. Having a written critique of your dog can be interesting and informative, especially from judges brought from other parts of the world.

Here’s a fun, interesting story about a person who has showed in IABCA:

  1. I am so glad that IABCA is no longer under the thumb of FCI. With FCI the waiting for titles was sooooo long to receive and I felt that Europe got everything so much faster. Distance really was not a factor with mail via air. You can submit your Orange Cards at the show and they are ready that day with your Titles. The IABCA shows are Great Fun and just think how all the judges feel that they can not be so fussy about talking to the exhibitors and giving them a true evaluation of each dog. Also when Best in Show’s are Judged, 3 Judges must agree on the Best Dog in Question. I have shown since 1995 in IABCA and its amazing how many AKC Grand Champions are entering now. This last weekend- October Washington Shows, I showed my 2 Veteran Ibizan Hounds, 1 a AKC Champion and they competed againsed each other. The AKC Champion got 3 Best of Breed Wins and the other got 1 Best of Breed Win with a Group 3. Its great knowing what a judge really knows on the Critiques and where they feel the dog lacks or excels in breed type. All in All I Loved It.
