The friendly kennel club!
What better way to practice before the show than to participate in our annual AKC Sanctioned “B” Match? (And if your pup is still too young for an official show, this is still a great way to get your feet wet.)
The match is open to puppies 3 to 6 months, 6 to 9 months, 9 to 12 months and adult dogs. Dogs who have major wins should only be entered for exhibition only. Puppies must be registered in the AKC, or eligible for registration in order to participate.
There is an entry blank in the menu on the left, or if you enter at the match, we’ll have forms there.
Our matches are relaxed and light-hearted, and yet they are held on our official show site, with regulation rings and mats, a nearly identical setting for the next day’s show.
Entries are only $4 for pre-entry and $5 for day of match entry. If you are brand new to showing dogs, there are plenty of people on hand who are happy to offer help and advice.
In addition, we’ll have some snacks and beverages for participants and spectators, so come on by and have some fun.
