Admission is free to this Westminster-style show, which is expected to bring in almost 2,000 dogs and as many as 200 breeds.
The breeds are divided into seven groups: sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting and herding. Each entered dog competes against other dogs in their respective breeds, and the winners of each breed then compete against all other breed winners in their assigned group. The seven group winners then compete for Best in Show.
There will be Rhodesian ridgebacks, American whippets, Great Danes, Siberian huskies and Chihuahuas at this interactive show, where you can not only see the dogs competing, being groomed and played with, but gather information about the various breeds.
