September 3 @ 8:30 am – September 5 @ 5:00 pm
Many community members believe that the CKC annual dog show is simply a beauty event. This year’s show is much more than that. Each day, there are obedience and rally classes that are designed to showcase a dog’s brains and their training. Each day there is also a Junior Handling event for kids 9-18 that are learning to show dogs. There are also some events the community may be less familiar with such as AKC National Owner-Handled Series competition for dogs that are exhibited by their owners that are not professional handlers.
All 3 days – Fast CAT (Coursing Ability Test). Dogs run one at a time chasing a lure (plastic bag) in a timed 100-yard dash. Each dog’s time is converted to MPH to see how fast they’ve run! *
All 3 days – Barn Hunt Trials offered twice daily with a potential for 6 different titles. In a Barn Hunt competition, dogs and their handlers work as a team to locate rats (which are always safely held in aerated tubes) hidden in a maze of straw or hay bales. *
Saturday – Canine Good Citizen. All dogs can be good dogs, and all owners can be great owners, all it takes is a little bit of training, lots of love, and of course, plenty of praise along the way. Working toward a CGC title teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership. *
Sunday – Trick Dog. If your dog loves to be the life of the party by showing off his arsenal of tricks, then he might be perfectly primed to earn AKC Trick Dog titles! There are 5 levels of performance with dogs learning more tricks for each level. *
Saturday – 4 to 6-month beginner puppy competition is for dogs that are four months of age and over but under six months on the day of the event.
Saturday – Pee Wee handler is a special attraction for pre-Junior Showmanship age children. The Pee Wee class is geared toward children 5 to under 9 years of age and is designed as a learning event for kids.
Fast CAT, Rally, Obedience, CGC testing, and Trick Dog testing are open to all dogs registered with AKC including mixed breeds and non-AKC registerable purebreds.
Most events are pre-entered, but the public is welcome to come and watch. Those with an “*” accept day of event entries. Please do not bring non-competing dogs to the event.
We ask that you wait until dogs are through showing and exit the ring before asking exhibitors about their breed.
