 New Mexico Sunset

Fanciers will have a lot of choices this week on where to spend their dog show dollars, with 35 shows in 13 locations.  Residents of the New York Metropolitan area can head to August NJ for four days of fall colors with the Palisades Kennel Club & the Ramapo Kennel Club, running Friday through Monday. 

Mid Atlantic enthusiasts have the option of the same four days in West Friendship MD with the Catonsville Kennel Club & the Maryland Kennel Club or the standard two days in Wilmington NC with the Hanover Kennel Club.  If you want to extend your summer fun try the Suwannee Valley Kennel Club Of Florida’s two shows in Lake City FL near Jacksonville.

Here in Tennessee the action is in Music City (that’s Nashville to non-Country Music fans) with the Tri-Star Kennel Club Of Williamson County Tennessee.  If you’re in the Great Lakes region there’s three shows starting Friday in Urbana OH courtesy of the Mad River Valley Kennel Club & the Licking River Kennel Club.  In the Heartland head to Mason City IA for a weekend with the hometown Mason City Kennel Club.

South Central residents have a lot of ground to cover and a lot of options this weekend.  There’s two in Enid OK hosted by the Sooner State Kennel Club, two in Canton TX with the Tyler Texas Kennel Club, or two in Los Lunas NM thanks to Valencia Valley Kennel Club Of New Mexico.  If you are a Toy Dog fancier get there early for the New Mexico Toy Group Club’s two shows on Thursday & Friday.

This week those west of the Rockies will have a lot of choices.  There’s the Black Mountain Kennel Club Of Nevada’s two shows in Primm NV south of Las Vegas, two in southern California with the Cabrillo Kennel Club in  Del Mar near San Diego, two in northern California with the Two Cities Kennel Club in Yuba City north of Sacramento, or four day fun fest starting Thursday in Boise ID with the Idaho Capital City Kennel Club & the Lizard Butte Kennel Club.

So whether you like the brilliant colors of fall foliage or the dazzling palette of desert sunsets, you can combine some terrific landscapes with some terrific dog scapes at an AKC dog show this week.
