DESERT SOUTHWEST CLUSTER 2012 !!
November 30, 2012 through December 3, 2012
Yuma Kennel Club and Imperial Valley Kennel Club
AKC All-Breed Conformation Shows,
Yuma County Fairgrounds, Yuma, AZ
We will be holding four days of American Kennel Club (AKC) dog shows starting Friday 11/30/12 through Monday, 12/3/12. The shows will be held at the Yuma County Fairgrounds. Parking and admission to the shows are free.
There will be approximately 1,000 dogs per day participating in these AKC shows. You will have the opportunity to see many different breeds, including some rare breeds, exhibiting the best attributes of their line. The shows will include conformation, obedience and rally judging. To see which breeds will participate and the time of their judging, you can check Jack Bradshaw, Show Superintendent's website after 11/14/12. The links will be posted below when the info becomes available.
Judging begins at 8:00 AM, Arizona time and will continue throughout the day. Group judging (finalists of each breed by group) start at approximately 3:00 PM, followed by selection of the Best in Show. Each day is a new show, with the same timelines followed.
Don’t know a lot about dog shows? On Saturday and Sunday there will be a Dog Show Tour, at 10:00 AM and again at 1:00 PM. Just show up at the Superintendent’s table for either event.
The Knights of Columbus will provide breakfast and lunch items from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM at a very reasonable price with really great food. Come out and enjoy a meal and support their organization.
We have a great selection of vendors geared for canines and their owners. You will find many items that are not typically available in town, and this is a wonderful opportunity to do your holiday shopping for your four-legged friends (and their owners).
Note: No dogs will be allowed on the show grounds that are not entered into the show.
