Gaviota State Park near Lompoc CA

Once again we have just a few areas where you can find an AKC dog show this weekend.  Seekers of multiple show weekends should head to the Great Lakes Region where you can find four shows beginning Friday in Marion OH courtesy of the Dan Emmett Kennel Club & the Marion Ohio Kennel Club and in Wisconsin where the Waukesha Kennel Club will do Saturday & Sunday in Waukesha followed by Monday & Tuesday with the Burlington Wisconsin Kennel Club in Elkhorn.

In the Northeast you have your choice of a single Saturday show in Cranston RI with the Providence County Kennel Club or three shows starting Friday in Bloomsburg PA with the Lackawanna Kennel Club & the Bald Eagle Kennel Club Of Williamsport PA.  In the Southeast you can spend the same three days in Greenville SC with the Hendersonville Kennel Club, the Greenville Kennel Club, & the Spartanburg Kennel Club. 

After that shows are, as they say, few and far between.  800 miles away is Longview TX where the Longview Kennel Club invites you to join them Saturday & Sunday.  1700 miles west is beautiful Lompoc CA, the site of this weekend’s Lompoc Valley Kennel Club’s two shows.  1100 miles north you will find the Hurricane Ridge Kennel Club Of Washington set up for two days in Sequim WA.  Once again the lack of quantity of shows is likely to mean the quality of the competition will be fierce.  We promise you you will have a good time at any of theses shows.
