The Shasta Kennel Club will be hosting an AKC sanctioned dog show. The show will be at the Shasta County Fairgrounds at 1890 Biggs St., Anderson, CA on March 12 – 15, 2020. Four days of All-breed conformation, Rally, Obedience, Fast CAT, Farm Dog Test and more.
Shasta Kennel Club Dog Show
”Shasta Kennel Club is a family and canine friendly organization promoting sportsmanlike conduct while advancing and encouraging numerous canine events.”
The Shasta Kennel Club had previously held the dog shows in Gridley for many years but have now moved it back to Shasta County.
All-breed Conformation Dog Show
In conformation, the dogs are considered breeding stock and are required to be intact (not spayed or neutered). The dog’s size, proportions, bone structure, teeth, coat, musculature, and movements are evaluated.
At the show you will see some of the most beautiful dogs in one place. Handlers come from all over to show their dogs and you get to see a variety of breeds that maybe you wouldn’t normally get to see.
Rally & Obedience
It is always a pleasure to see a well obedient dog and watch them work. You can tell that the handlers put a lot of time in with their dogs. It is obvious the dogs are having a good time.
Obedience and Rally held on March 13 – 15, 2020 at the dog show.
The Fast CAT is a new venue for the AKC. Your dog is timed on a 100 yard dash and you are scored based on your dogs’ speed. This fun new event is open to all AKC breeds as well as Canine Partners.
Fast CAT trials held on March 13 & 14, 2020 at the dog show.
AKC Farm Dog Certified Test
The Farm Dog Certified test provides for a series of twelve exercises that represent situations a farm dog would encounter in a typical farm environment. The basic test requirements are to emphasize a dog’s ability of self-control, confidence and trust. These traits and foundational training are vital to a working farm dog. The FDC program provides an opportunity for all dogs to apply their basic training in a novel environment, demonstrating their natural capability and trainability to work in partnership with their human companions.
The Farm Dog Certified Test held on March 12th and March 15th, 2020 at the dog show.
So take advantage of having an AKC dog show in the Redding area and stop by to watch this wonderful event. Shasta Kennel Club members work hard putting on the show so that everyone can have a good time. You have seen them on television and now you can see a dog show in person. Right here in the Redding area. I hope to see you there.
