BENCHING BOW WOWS
Are you interested in learning about a specific breed? Perhaps you are trying to figuring out what dog breed might be best for your household. The Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show is the perfect opportunity to see and hear what specific dogs were bred to do and learn their history. Showcasing over 175 breeds, with 1500 entries a day, the The Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show event is an exciting and unique event for dog lovers who will have a rare opportunity at this “benched” show to learn about and get to know hundreds of breeds of dogs, all in one location over two days. If you’re a Dalmatian lover, a French bulldog fanatic or you just want to learn more about a particular breed, this is the event to attend. Every type of breed including sporting breeds (Retrievers), working breeds (Bernese Mountain dogs), terrier breeds (Irish Terriers), toy breeds (Italian Greyhounds), and non-sporting breeds (Dalmatians) will be there.
* Please note, however tempting, ask for permission to pet first. Dogs may have been prepped for being judged.
SHOPPING FOUR A PAWS
There are about 100 vendors offering lots of shopping for your furry friend! Peruse the isles for the perfect package for your pampered pooch.
TOP DOG EDUCATION
There will be over twenty public education tables and among them are several rescue organizations. If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog check out the many special pure bred MUTTS, from mixin' terriers to schnoodles to spanicolies, all looking for their forever homes.
Enjoy lots of fun competitions like Best Puppy in Show, Best Toy Dog and the famous Fashion Show. Judging will be based on Originality, High Style, Humor, and Breed Heritage.
Also, not to be missed is the Flyball Demo. Flyball is a competition sport, where dogs have to skip four hurdles without the help of their handler; press a trigger on the flyball box which ejects a ball the dog has to catch. Then they run with the ball over the hurdles back to the finish line. Cheer on your favorite doggie.
NUZZLE A RARE MUZZLE
The Golden Gate Kennel Club will offer seminars and a chance to meet rarer & newer breeds including the Dogo Argentinos, German Spitz, Danish-Swedish Farmdogs, Bracco Italiani , Mudik and Portuguese Podengos.
