I guess most people would say the more extreme dogs are specialty dogs. I'd tell you to show in both all breed and specialties though. I've always entered any specialty that's connected to an all breed. Why not, lol. My GSD club puts on two specialties a year, and I've always entered.
My girl Carly is a fabulous mover, but she never did much at specialties until she finished her championship. She went Select at the one specialty she was shown in as a champion.
Specialty rings are generally much bigger than all breed rings. Be prepared to run!
