The Trenton Kennel Club and a Pair of Inspirational Exhibitors
For many years, the Trenton Kennel Club has put on one of this country’s largest dog shows. Senior Editor Christi McDonald reminds readers that when it comes to this New Jersey club’s all-breed event, however, size isn’t everything. A beautiful venue with spacious rings supported by local specialty clubs is only one of the reasons for the show’s success. Learn what has made this show a destination for so many exhibitors and spectators, and meet the show chair who does her best to accommodate even the smallest of requests.
A smile can usually be found on Social Media Maven Pilar Kuhn’s face, and in today’s Down and Back you’ll meet two of the reasons why this is so. At a recent dog show, Pilar found inspiration from two of the exhibitors she encountered. Meet the Pug and Scottie handlers who were able to make our blogger’s heart flutter with happiness.
Starting tomorrow, Kayla Bertagnolli will be at the Beehive Cluster in South Jordan, Utah, and I’ll be at the Trenton Kennel Club’s show in West Windsor Township, N.J. If you see us this weekend, please be sure to say, “Hello!”

The Bucks County show in Pennsylvania has traditionally gotten more praise and attention than Trenton, thanks to the star power of a few of its members, including the late Dr. Josephine Deubler and one of the sport’s most respected Terrier men, Walter Goodman. more
One day at a dog show recently, I saw two of the most delightful things – both made my heart flutter with happiness and put a smile on my face.
The first smile-fest started while watching a little girl in the Pug ring. Although she was a little peanut out there among all the adults, she was charming and smiley, and didn’t appear the least bit nervous.
I walked past the ring after most of the individual exams were done, so I didn’t get to see how she managed to get her Pug onto the table, but she was able to get the dog to free-stack. more
