Exhibitors will have ample opportunity to show their dogs and still take the Fourth off to grill some dogs.  In addition to the big Oklahoma City cluster, there are three other sites offering four day clusters this week.  

New Englanders will be in Wrentham MA starting Thursday for the Wampanoag Kennel Club & the Hockamock Kennel Club’s four shows.  New Yorkers will head up state for four shows, three in Bainbridge with the Kanadasaga Kennel Club, the Chenango Valley Kennel Club, & the Del-Otse-Nango Kennel Club.  To get to the fourth show fanciers will have to motor the half hour west Sunday to  Whitney Point NY where the Susque-Nango Kennel Club will be set up.  In the Mid Atlantic the Potomac Hound Club will warm up Thursday for the Southern Maryland Kennel Club & the Rock Creek Kennel Club in Bel Alton MD, the only site holding a show on the Monday holiday.

In the Great Lakes region, there’s two shows in Vandergrift PA hosted by the Bushy Run Kennel Club, three shows in Lima OH courtesy of the Sandusky Kennel Club, the Dayton Kennel Club, & the Lima Kennel Club, and in West Bend WI with the Kettle Moraine Kennel Club.  Rocky Mountain Time Zone exhibitors will have the option of staying local for the Buckhorn Valley Kennel Club’s two shows in Loveland CO.

For once west coast fanciers will have a full contingent of shows.  In Southern California rub elbows with celebrities at the Kennel Club Of Beverly Hills & Long Beach Kennel Club’s two shows in Long Beach or head to a totally different California in Ferndale where the redwoods are older than Declaration of Independence for the Lost Coast Kennel Club Of California’s to shows.  The Mount Bachelor Kennel Club will set up Friday and stay for three days in Redmond OR while the Bell Vernon Kennel Association will hold their two shows in Mount Vernon WA.

So make a long weekend it of it, visit an AKC show, and still enjoy the fireworks on the Fourth.
