Hot Springs National Park

If you live in the heartland, you will have to travel a ways for a show. You can choose from Monroe MI (the Monroe Kennel Club), Freeport IL (the Rockford-Freeport Illinois Kennel Club), Hot Springs National Park AR (the Hot Springs National Park Kennel Club), Lubbock, TX (Heart Of The Plains Kennel Club ), and Grand Junction, CO (Grand Valley Kennel Club), all with Saturday/Sunday shows.

Kaneohe Hawaii

For those on the West Coast try the Richland Kennel Club (Kennewick WA), the Bonanza Kennel Club Of Carson City (NV), or the Burbank Kennel Club (Van Nuys CA). Finally if you are in Paradise and are tired of the beach try the Windward Hawaiian Dog Fanciers Association in Kaneohe HI on the island of Oahu.

We are entering the last quarter of the year and time is running out to see many of the dogs we have followed all year. Look for an AKC dog show near you.
