The Beachfront Wildwood NJ Convention Center

As many fanciers focus their attention on the impending Westminster Kennel Club show, there are fewer venues this week than last.  If you are going to a show this weekend you will have to choose among just seven sites in the US.  The real problem is will the weather let you get there?

If you prefer Snoopy to Snooki, visit the Jersey Shore starting tomorrow for five days on the beach in Wildwood NJ with the Union County Kennel Club, the Sand And Sea Kennel Club & the Boardwalk Kennel Club.  The weather is a little better in Atlanta GA where the Sawnee Mountain Kennel Club Of Georgia, the Conyers Kennel Club Of Georgia, and Lawrenceville Kennel Club will team for three starting Friday.  However, if you want to avoid bad weather entirely try the Lost Dutchman Kennel Club & the Sahuaro State Kennel Club four shows beginning Friday.   They will even sweeten the deal by throwing in two limited breed shows on Thursday, the Sporting Dog Association Of Arizona & the Arizona Toy Dog Fanciers.

Those of you lucky enough to have steady employment can take in the traditional two day weekends with the St. Joseph Kennel Club in St Joseph MO, the Southeast Arkansas Kennel Club in Pine Bluff AR, the Hobbs New Mexico Kennel Club in Hobbs NM, or with the Sun Maid Kennel Club Of Fresno in Fresno CA.  Come on, what’s a little weather compared to a day at a dog show?
