Breed Standards

What is a breed standard?

Essentially, the breed standard is the picture in words for how a breed should look and also details the temperament of a breed. A breed standard is the pattern used by breeders in their attempts to breed typical specimens of the breed, and it is the tool of the judge in assessing dogs in the show ring.
