If you live in the Southeast you will have several chances, eleven to be exact, to visit an AKC dog show this week. From Salisbury MD, where the Salisbury Maryland & Mispillion Kennel Clubs will host three shows beginning Friday, to Brooksville FL with the Hernando County Kennel Club doing the Saturday/Sunday thing, there are lots of choices. The Furniture City Kennel Club will also do a traditional two day in Greensboro NC, while you can spend Thursday through Sunday in Huntsville AL with the Huntsville & Decatur Alabama Kennel Clubs.

Huntsville is home to Redstone Arsenal

New Englanders also have a four day cluster in Fitchburg MA courtesy of the Cheshire, Souhegan, & Framingham District Kennel Clubs. The Greater Muskegon, Kalamazoo, & Grand Rapids Kennel Clubs will hold sway for three days starting Friday in Grand Rapids MI. Heartlanders can spend the weekend in Springfield MO with the Ozarks Kennel Club.

The rest of the country will have to get on the road for a bit to see the Cypress Creek Kennel Club Of Texas’ two shows in Houston or the Southern Colorado Kennel Club two in Pueblo. On the West Coast it’s all up north with the Wine Country Kennel Club’s two shows in Napa CA and the Willamette Valley Kennel Club’s pair in Salem OR.

Finally, we expect mostly locals in the frozen north at the Cook Inlet Kennel Club in Palmer AK. Florida or Alaska, you will find beautiful animals and wonderful folks at any AKC show.
