Opinions are welcome.
There is no such thing as an "altered category" in dog shows however at specialty shows s/n dogs/bitches can compete in Veteran Classes for BOB (best of breed) if that is the highest award offered for the day...they can NOT however compete to earn any Championship points.
Remember the purpose of conformation shows is to evaluate what dogs/bitches are worthy of breeding.
