Nevada County Fairgrounds goes to the dogs

Almost 1,500 canines will seek top dog status at the Gold Country Kennel Club’s annual dog show this weekend.

The competitors, representing more than 170 breeds of purebred dogs recognized by the American Kennel Club, will be entered in the all-breed shows at the Nevada County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 4-5. There also will be several specialty shows Friday, Sept. 3, that feature Border Collies, Bulldogs, Doberman Pinchers, Labrador Retrievers and Papillons.

Besides dogs being shown in the conformation and obedience rings, the public will be able to cheer for their favorite dogs as they compete in the AKC obedience class called Rally. Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler complete a specially designed course. Rally promotes fun and enjoyment for dogs as the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of designated stations.



In addition, on both Saturday and Sunday, Dachshunds and small terriers will be performing.

Admission to the Gold Country Kennel Club shows is free. People are encouraged to visit the fairgrounds to view a favorite breed perform, talk to the experts and pick up free information about many topics relating to family dogs. To find out when breeds will be shown and in what ring, check out the back page of Tuesday’s Prospector or the Sunday Express.




Day of show parking is $7 for a single day or $10 for a multiple day pass. More than 45 vendors will be on the show grounds selling dog-related items. The show starts both days at 8 a.m. at the Nevada County Fairgrounds at 11228 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley.
