As summer winds down, we have dog folks looking for one last extended weekend of showing. This week five of the nine sites having shows will offer three or more events.

Springfield MA

Three of those five will offer four day stops. Fanciers in Region one can opt for four days starting Thursday in West Springfield MA with the Northwestern Connecticut Dog Club and the Elm City, Newtown, &Great Barrington Kennel Clubs or a traditional Saturday/Sunday weekend in Middleburg PA courtesy of the Mid Susquehanna Valley Kennel Clubs.

Kansas City MO

There are also four day outings beginning Thursday in Kansas City MO with the Leavenworth & Heart Of America Kennel Clubs and in Santa Rosa CA with the Lake County Kennel Club Of Northern California & the Mensona Kennel Club. There will be big numbers all three days in Atlanta at the shows hosted by the Sawnee Mountain Kennel Club Of Georgia, the Lawrenceville Kennel Club & the Conyers Kennel Club Of Georgia starting Friday. Expect quality, not quantity, in Chagrin Falls OH on the three days hosted by the Sugarbush & Western Reserve Kennel Clubs, also starting Friday.

Santa Rosa CA

More Saturday/Sunday offerings are to be had in St Charles IL with the Elgin Kennel Club and in Lake Elmo MN presented by the St Croix Valley Kennel Club. The Sammamish Kennel Club will hold only one all breed show in Redmond WA, on Sunday, but that will be preceded by two days of specialties and limited breed shows.

If you can make it to one or more of these shows, go. You won’t be disappointed. They are AKC shows with the best dogs in the world.
