Our dog shows are coming up! If you would like to stop over to see some beautiful dogs, please check out the judging program. This program will show you the times and ring number for the different breeds entered on each day. The show starts on Friday, July 14 (Holland MI Kennel Club) and continues with Saturday & Sunday - July 15 & 16th, 2017 for the Battle Creek Kennel Club shows. Please let me know if you need help understanding the judging schedule. Also, please note that no un-entered dogs are allowed on the show grounds. No admission charge but there is a $5.00 parking fee.
We are currently lining up our speakers for 2017. As soon as we have some speakers confirmed, we will update the website.
Our 2017 shows are in July with the Holland Michigan Kennel Club holding their show on Friday and we have back to back shows on Saturday/Sunday. Please check back later for more information on the shows.
If you have an interest in attending one of our meetings, please come - any time - no reservation needed! Our members have quite a lot of experience in many fields and gladly share their knowledge whenever they can.
Do you need information on training classes in our area? Send an email and someone will get back to you within a day or two with information.
