& 111th Detroit Dog Shows
has teamed up with the Detroit Kennel Club to
give you the chance to win a pair of tickets to
see the 110th or the 111th Detroit Dog Shows at
Cobo Center. The 110th and 111th annual Detroit
Kennel Club Dog Shows will be held on Saturday
and Sunday, March 2 & 3, 2013 at the Cobo
two-day celebration of dogs brings more than 2,000
dogs from the more than 160 breeds and varieties
recognized by the American Kennel Club. Show highlights
include new demonstrations, obedience and conformation
competition, rare breed exhibits and high flying
four-legged competitions. The DKC welcomes the
return of pure bred rescue and the energetic Rock-N-Roll
K9 Performance Team.
The DKC shows are a ‘benched show’,
which offer visitors the unique opportunity to
meet with owners and breeders and learn about
breed characteristics, temperament, care, health,
grooming, history and other issues for dog owners.
When dogs are not in the judging rings, they are
required by the rules of the show to be displayed
on a bench according to breed, making it easy
for a spectator to talk to several breeders of
a specific dog in the same location. The DKC Dog
Shows are one of only five benched American Kennel
Club (AKC) shows left in the United States (Chicago,
Philadelphia, San Francisco and New York).
The benched format show is demanding on both exhibitors
and their dogs, but worthwhile for all because
of the public support and appreciation. Visitors
can leave with the show catalog containing a breeder’s
directory that is a year-long reference for local
veterinarians, breeders and show spectators, and
is considered “the local source” for
a good breed referral.
The 110th DKC Show will take place on Saturday,
March 2, and the 111th show will follow on Sunday,
March 3. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for
children (ages 3-12) and seniors (65 and over).
A family pass (2 adults, 3 children) is also available
for $40. Tickets will be sold separately for each
show and are good only for that day’s show.
Dogs will be on display to the public and demonstrations
will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Best in Show will
go into the ring approximately 6 p.m. each day.
lucky winners will each receive a pair of tickets
to the 110th or 111th Detroit Dog Shows.
