“Meet the Breeds” is a display of AKC pure-bred dog breeds. We will be located
near the grandstand at the betting oval from the time the festival opens in the
morning until mid-afternoon.
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet
many different breeds. Members of both clubs and other pure-bred dog fanciers
will share their dogs with you and talk about their breed’s strong points and
not-so-strong points. You will be able to learn about a particular breed’s
requirements for exercise and grooming, the health concerns for that breed and
how to find a responsible breeder and what questions you should ask and be
asked. There will be handouts and information for you to take home.
Last year there were over 30 different
breeds scheduled to attend this function. There will be everything from the
smallest toy dogs to the giants of the canine world and many in between. You
may also find impromptu dog tricks, obedience demonstrations and draft work
throughout the day at our base. You may find your perfect canine companion here.
Please come and join us in a celebration
of the wonderful world of dogs! For more information you may contact Mary Lou
