The Saint Bernard Club of America hosted the National Specialty Dog Show in South Sioux City, Nebraska.
The week long competition includes hundreds of dogs from around the world. They come from as far away as Europe and Australia.
Judges are looking for a certain type of body structure - a tall body with long legs, skull width, and eye angle.
"They're made for, initially for rescue and they're supposed to find people in snow drifts and we want a dog that's going to search out people and take care of them and have a kind, loving expression. So they have to have just great personalities," said David Trachtenberg, Health Chair for St. Bernard Club of America.
The event runs through Saturday at the Marina Conference Center and is open to the public.
