Also beginning Thursday is the four day stop in Topeka KS courtesy of the Manhattan Kansas Kennel Club & Topeka Kennel Club.

The big numbers will be in Atlanta GA where the Sawnee Mountain Kennel Club Of Georgia, Lawrenceville Kennel Club, & Conyers Kennel Club Of Georgia will likely see some of the big names.
