Dog Show Opens at Fairgrounds this Weekend

The Gold Country Kennel Club Dog Show runs this weekend at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.   Co Chair of the dog show, Leslie Boyles says there will be over 1,300 dogs participating in the judged events, representing 150 of the 160 breeds recognized by the American Kennel club. She says a schedule of the judging will be published in the Union Newspaper Prospector section, on Thursday.

“So if you’re looking for a Boston Terrier or an Akita or a Collie or whatever, you can find out what time they’re going to be exhibited and go to that ring. They will pick the best of that breed. The best of that breed then goes on to a group level and then at the end of the day is the seven top dogs from each of those groups will compete for best dog in show.”

There will be a Best of Show selected on both days of the show.  Forty vendors are signed up to offer all things dog related and Boyles says most of the breeders and dog handlers are more than happy to talk with people about the traits of their breed. She suggests you wait until after their dog has been judged in the ring before you ask questions.  The Dog Show at the fairgrounds is free to the public but there is a $5 parking charge. The hours are from 8:30am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday.
