All Breed Dog Show at the Kitsap Fairgrounds & Event Center

(Port Orchard, WA)   The Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club and the Washington State Cocker Spaniel Club is hosting all breed dog shows on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Kitsap Fairgrounds & Events Center March 21-23.

This dog show is the largest of its kind west of Seattle and will have dogs shown in rings at both the Presidents’ Hall and the Kitsap Sun Pavilion at the Kitsap Fairgrounds & Events Center, located at 1200 NW Fairgrounds Road in Bremerton.

Friday’s event is an all cocker spaniel show and is held in the Presidents’ Hall only, while the other breeds will show on Saturday and Sunday in both buildings. Saturday and Sunday events include two All-Breed Dog Shows (Conformation), three Rally Trials, and three Obedience Trials. There will be two Obedience and Rally trials on Saturday and one on Sunday, for a total of three trials over the weekend.

There will be one Conformation show each on Saturday and Sunday. Although the show hours are listed at 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., the actual times of each judging can be found here and at the Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club’s website here.

Saturday and Sunday event locations:
Rings 1-7 (Conformation) are in the Pavilion.
Rings 8 (Conformation) and Rings 9-11 (Rally and Obedience) are in the Presidents’ Hall.

The Peninsula Dog Fanciers Club’s website shows a study performed by the AKC (American Kennel Club) which states that AKC dog shows bring in $512 per exhibitor to the local economy.
