It was a dog extravaganza this past weekend at the Olympic Kennel Club's dog shows and obedience, rally, and agility trials in Enumclaw, Washington. We hope you enjoy these shots from the events!
In the conformation competition, more than 2,100 dogs were entered daily, with over 22 rings on site.
The club offered the AKC National Owner-Handled Series and Best Veteran competition.
There was a practice match as well as multiple specialties on Thursday and Friday. Judging workshops were offered, as was a Junior clinic. In addition to obedience, rally and agility competition, there were numerous opportunities to compete in performance events.
The Barn Hunt Association hosted four sanctioned Barn Hunt trials, a Barn Hunt Match and an introductory event.
Cascade Coursing Club ran four Coursing Ability Tests open to all breeds as well as two Junior Coursing tests for sighthounds.
Herding breeds demonstrated their herding prowess in demonstrations throughout the weekend.
The club also offered many extras for exhibitors, including health clinics, exercise paddock areas and a golf tournament.
Great job, Olympic Kennel Club!
We appreciate the hard work you put into your shows.
