In fact, that icon of underdogs everywhere, Cleveland OH, will host one of the largest gathering of dogs this year. The Lorain County, Medina, Richland County, and Western Reserve Kennel will host four shows with just shy of 10,000 dogs entered, making Cleveland one of the biggest prizes this whole year. As all Drew Care fans know, Cleveland rocks!
Another town offering a Thursday through Sunday string of shows is Jackson MS. We were there last year and there were several top dogs showing. To sweeten the deal the Brandon Kennel Club Of Mississippi and the Mississippi State Kennel Club, your hosts, are the very epitome of the southern hospitality.
There is a three show long weekend available in Orlando FL presented by the Space Coast Kennel Club Of Palm Bay , Central Florida Kennel Club, & Brevard Kennel Club. With record blizzards predicted for much of the US, a Disney World/dog show vacation is very tempting.
Finally, if you just have two days and you have to stay close to home try the two day offerings brought to you by the Lehigh Valley & Delaware Water Gap Kennel Clubs in Bethelehem PA, the Tidewater Kennel Club Of Virginia in Virginia Beach VA, or the Starved Rock Kennel Club in Wheaton IL.
We will tell you this, we know at least two of the top ten dogs will skip Long Beach and be at one of the above shows. So even if you can’t make Long Beach, you can still enjoy the company of the most beautiful animals on the planet.
