This is an AKC sanctioned AB/O/JSHW (All breed, obedience, junior showmanship) event that draws more than 1,000 entries with approximately 150 different breeds of dogs from all over the country and Canada represented at the show. These are champion show dogs that compete all over the country. Visitors get to go backstage to meet the dogs and their owners and handlers. Learn more about your favorite breed or ask questions about dog breeds in which you are interested. In the obedience trials, we’ll have some amazing dogs that will awe you with their ability to follow commands. There are also some vendors with unique pet products at the show. Some of the proceeds of the show are used to fund scholarships awarded each year to two pre-veterinary students at the University of Connecticut. This is a great family event.
