Laramie Kennel Club Dog Show set for May 27-28
The Laramie Kennel Club Dog Show is a free event starting at 8 a.m. May 27-28 at the Albany County Fairgrounds until the Best in Show competition in mid-afternoon, according to a news release.
There is a $2/day parking fee for attendees, and there will be vendors, food, and plenty of dogs to see.
The following is recommended dog show etiquette for spectators:
— First, strollers and dogs (not entered) will not be permitted at the fairgrounds May 27-28.
— Next, attendees should ask the owner/handler before they touch any dog. Some owner/handlers will not permit any contact with their dog particularly before their competition.
— Although, most handlers will answer questions, please wait until after they have shown or competed. Their focus is with success in their event. Laramie Kennel Club members will be happy to answer questions and will be available both days.
— After the dog has competed, the next group will come in the ring for competition. This show will include confirmation, rally and obedience. Once a dog shows, it will move either to the grooming area or to an off-show site. So, if there is a particular breed attendees would like to see, the show schedule will be available.
