"Excellent breed representatives" (ER), mainly at an annual DKBS meeting.
At least two special breed judges – who are members of the DKBS - and
a member of the breeding committee, will award the featured dog . This board
is appointed by the DKBS Presidium.
The awarding of the title "Excellent breed representatives" is decided solely by this board.
