Dog show this weekend

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

More than 850 dogs from more than 120 breeds will compete during this weekend’s Carson City Bonanza Kennel Club All-Breed, AKC Dog Show.

The show will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in Fuji Park.

The best of each breed winners advance to compete in the group competitions. Each AKC-recognized breed falls into one of seven group classifications. The seven groups are sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting and herding. Four placements are awarded in each group, but only the first-place winner advances to the Best In Show competition.

“This show is a wonderful weekend for all dog lovers to come out and celebrate the beauty and variety of our beloved companions,” Candy Roper, president of the Bonanza Kennel Club and show chairwoman.
