The second annual AKC Companion Events Extravaganza will run from March 27-30, 2014 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, PA. The 2014 Extravaganza will include the AKC National Agility Championship, the AKC National Obedience Championship and the first-ever AKC Rally® National Championship.
Due to the 2013 Rally National Competition’s enthusiastic reception from exhibitors and spectators alike, the event will be upgraded and designated a National Championship. The winning dog from the highest-level Rally Advanced Excellent class will be the “2014 AKC Rally® National Champion” and will be the first dog to proudly place the “RNC” prefix before its name. Rally exhibitors will still have the opportunity to compete for top honors in the Novice, Advanced and Excellent classes at the Extravaganza.
“The inaugural Companion Events Extravaganza held in Tulsa, OK last month was such a great success that it was a natural progression to now have three National Championships celebrating companion dog sports,” said Doug Ljungren, Vice President of Companion and Performance Events. “Enthusiastic spectators cheered on their favorite dog or breed during the fast-paced action of Agility, the flawless execution of Obedience and the fun of Rally.”
The 2014 Extravaganza will feature Agility on Thursday, Agility and Rally on Friday, and Agility and Obedience on Saturday and Sunday.
