After a couple of slow weekends, we are back to dog show gluttony. The most hardcore exhibitors will find enough dog show action this week to fill the most exhibitionist appetites. The competition starts Wednesday in Salem VA where the James River, Roanoke, and New River Valley Kennel Clubs will join forces to produce five shows.

The only three day weekend (Friday -Sunday) this week is in Kennel LA courtesy of the Louisiana and Metarie Kennel Clubs. Traditional two day fare is on the menu in La Crosse WI (the Coulee Kennel Club) and in Dixon CA (the Richmond Dog Fanciers Club). Finally, there is the Northeast Region’s Weekend With Options. You start on Saturday in Greenfield MA with the Pioneer Valley Kennel Club. Then you have your choice of heading to Keene NH for Sunday with the Cheshire Kennel Club or to Ringoes NJ to party with the Hunterdon Hills Kennel Club.

Wherever you go you will see beautiful dogs and meet lovely people for it is an AKC dog show.
