WELCOME to the Home Page for the 2011 Great Pyrenees Club of America National Specialty Dog Show, hosted by the Great Pyrenees Club of Metropolitan Milwaukee.  This year’s National Specialty will be held at the beautiful and  very dog-show-friendly  Olympia Resort & Spa in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, just 40 miles west of downtown Milwaukee.

The GPCMM is proud and excited to be hosting this event. It’s been 20 years since the last time we hosted the National Specialty in  1991. We figured we were due! Back in ’91 the GPCMM was among the first clubs to offer a National Specialty and a licensed Specialty Show back-to-back.  In keeping with that progressive spirit, we felt again needed to break new ground.

This year, for the first time, The National Specialty Week will include a set of “Bookend” Regional’s. There will be a GPCA Regional Obedience & Rally Trial to get things started on Wednesday morning.  Then the  National Specialty Show will open immediately following the Wednesday Regional, with its own Obedience & Rally events and continuing into all of the conformation events throughout the week.  Finally, there will be a GPCA Regional Conformation Specialty with a third Obedience & Rally Trial on Sunday. That provides the opportunity for the Obedience & Rally competitors to earn 3-legs in the same week!

Olympia is a wonderful venue and we have secured a very reasonable room rate. We hope that you will join us! 
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions concerning the show or the site.

We look forward to seeing you in April!
