The Biggest AKC Shows, plus Shows Closing June 12, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson introduces last year’s biggest U.S. shows and asks, “If our shows are so good, why aren’t they bigger?” As many fanciers lament a downsizing of the American show scene, Bo takes a look at some of the factors that can affect entries at both all-breed shows and specialties. Is the dog sport really shrinking?

The Blue Crab Cluster in Richmond, Va., will welcome exhibitors to the Richmond Raceway Complex again later this month. Group shows for both Hounds and Terriers will precede four all-breed shows and plenty of extras are scheduled, including a clinic for juniors and a seafood feast. Senior Editor Christi McDonald has all the details on this cluster, as well as those taking place in California, Massachusetts and Oregon.

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.
