Ohio Specialty Announcement:
All entries for the Ohio Specialty Show will be refunded if we have to cancel. At this time, the show is a GO! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask :) We look forward to seeing you all!

The KOA Shelby is looking forward to hosting our Shows.  They have reviewed the protocols we have implemented for Social Distancing within the ring and outside 

the ring and they will comply with theirs.  Any guidelines within the campsite itself will be posted by the Campsite. 


If you are planning on bringing a tent for ringside you will not be able to put them up until the clubs have marked where they can be set.  This will be done with Orange spray paint on the ground.  Tents will be 6 feet apart and no more than 6 people to a tent.  This will be strictly enforced.

Here are Preliminary Guidelines put  in place by the Show Secretary for the Ohio Specialty weekend. These guidelines are fluid and can change and be updated as needed. Please visit our website for updates.  Looking forward to seeing our Great Dane Friends.


  1. Tenting and exhibiting:  The ready ring will be increased in size to accommodate social distancing.  Only one class at a time may be in the ready ring. Once that class has been brought into the ring for exhibition the next class may come into the ready ring.  The ring itself will be increased in size not only to help with social distance within the ring but also to accommodate distancing of the tents outside the ring. Each morning and evening the ring equipment will be sanitized

  2. The show secretary will provide each exhibitor a paper bag which will include gloves, mini hand sanitizer and a "Wild West" kerchief to use as a mask if you wish.  

  3.  There will be hand sanitizing stations around the outside of the ring ( little stands with Purrell or hand sanitizer, most likely at each corner of the ring. 

  4. For exhibitor tents, we will ask that for a 6ft distance between and no more than 6-10 people to a tent. 

Also there will be a Division meeting for the 2020 National most likely Saturday  1/2 hour after Breed.
