While we always encourage people to get out to the shows each weekend, you will have a problem doing that this week unless you live well east of the Mississippi with almost 80 percent of AKC’s shows being concentrated in the eastern US.  There is only one game in town for exhibitors in the Northeast, the Bald Eagle Kennel Club Of Williamsport, PA & the Back Mountain Kennel Club three shows in Bloomsburg PA, about 150 miles west of Manhattan.

We have more options down the eastern seaboard with four shows in Virginia Beach VA with the Tidewater Kennel Club Of Virginia and the Virginia Beach Kennel Club and two shows in North Augusta SC with the hometown Augusta Kennel Club.  Just a little west in Knoxville TN, you can have four with the Oak Ridge Kennel Club and the Tennessee Valley Kennel Club.  Floridians can spend the weekend with the Lake Eustis Kennel Club in Weirsdale FL, an hour north of Orlando.

Midwesterners can opt for five days in Fort Wayne IN beginning tomorrow with the Northeastern Indiana Kennel Club, the La Porte County Kennel Club, the Sturgis Kennel Club, & the Marion Kennel Club, or wait until the weekend for two in Joplin MO hosted by the Tri-state Kennel Club & the Bartlesville Kennel Club.  The Tri State Kennel Club are in Tulsa OK just for one day, Sunday.

Out west you have two options the San Gabriel Valley Kennel Club’s & the Antelope Valley Kennel Club’s  two shows east of LA in City of Industry or 3400 (yes, 3400) miles north in Palmer AK for the Cook Inlet Kennel Club’s one show on Sunday.   For all of you lucky enough to be close to a show, do take the opportunity to see the beautiful AKC purebred dogs.  For those who are just too far away, come visit us for the quickest results on the internet, photos of the winners, and the back stories no one else has.
