AKC and UKC Shows, plus Shows Closing August 07, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson recently spent the weekend in Stockton, Calif., where both American Kennel Club and United Kennel Club conformation shows were held – on the same site. The experience provided the perfect platform for comparing the organizations’ events, with each receiving both high and low marks from our reviewer. See if you agree with Bo’s evaluation.

The Santa Barbara Kennel Club will host its glamorous all-breed events next month, and Senior Editor Christi McDonald reminds readers of the many reasons to head to the West Coast in August. A Sighthound Spectacular and “Bullyganza” are just two of the special events being planned at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. Get all the details on these and other events closing on August 7.

Be sure to check out our photo galleries, where you’ll find recent winners and candid photos from shows held near and far. Just click on Show Scene below the masthead banner, or select any of the images in the left-hand column of our home page.

In addition to the 104th and 105th Santa Barbara Kennel Club shows, the fifth annual SBKC and Purina ProPlan Breeders’ Showcase will take place at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara. more

The American Kennel Club or the United Kennel Club: Is there an Alternative?
By Bo Bengtson

I don’t often write show reports, but the American Kennel Club shows in California on July 19-22, hosted by the Kennel Club of Salinas and Sierra-Tuolumne Kennel Club Inc., are worth highlighting for two reasons: the atmosphere and their proximity to four all-breed United Kennel Club shows.

The AKC shows were pleasant, in spite of the hot weather. more
