Guidelines for Exhibitors, plus Shows Closing August 21, 2013
Senior Editor Bo Bengtson wonders if those of us who participate in AKC events are aware of the many policies and guidelines that govern the conformation show ring. “Recently I’ve heard several stories that make it clear that a simple, printed booklet titled, for example, ‘AKC Guidelines for Exhibitors’ would be useful,” Bo suggests. Learn about one recent incident that had our experienced dog man brushing up on AKC’s “Rules Applying to Dog Shows.”

Many noteworthy dog clubs are planning to welcome exhibitors and their dogs to their events next month. North Branch Park in Bridgewater, N.J., will be the destination for many East Coast fanciers, and West Coast exhibitors will have their choice of heading to the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma, Calif., or Pioneer Park in Brownsville, Ore. Get the details from Senior Editor Christi McDonald, and discover the fun that awaits exhibitors in the Gulf Coast.

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.
