Meet and greet a variety of different dog breeds. Visitors can learn about responsible dog ownership, speak to breeders, owners and handlers.
Watch the judging of various breeds in Conformation and cheer for your favorite. Local Note: Two Five Valley Kennel Club dogs received an invite and participated in the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in May 2024 in NYC with one bringing home an Award of Merit.
See young owner-handlers compete against their peers in the Junior Showmanship competition with the Best of the Best Junior receiving a $500 scholarship.
Watch owner-handlers compete in a special series called the National Owner-Handled Series. These exhibitors are striving to qualify for an invitation to the finals at the AKC National Championships presented by Royal Canin in Orlando in December.
