Demonstrations Spotlight Training, Teamwork and Fun With Your Dog
Special event demo rings: ring 12 & 13
Just like you see on TV, Providence’s Bay Colony Dog Show is a great opportunity for dog lovers of all ages to holiday shop, spot over 160 American Kennel Club (AKC) dog breeds under one roof, and watch the nation’s top purebred dogs compete for “Best in Show” each day.
Sponsored by Pedigree, the dog show is a great place to meet responsible dog breeders and learn how to be a responsible dog owner. Don’t hesitate to ask questions at the Club table near Pedigree, and gather breed-specific information. Find out more about your favorite breed’s health, grooming, exercise, and more.
One exciting element of this year’s show is a chance to meet the nation’s top purebred dog breeders at “Meet the Breeds,” a noontime weekend demonstration designed to introduce you to popular and unique AKC breeds.
Experts will tell you about the history of and standards for their breed, and you can ask questions and meet these friendly canines. This is a great time to find out what breed is right for you.
Another great resource is the Pedigree Select-A-Dog kiosk at the Pedigree booth. A computer takes you through a series of questions, then recommends breeds for you to explore further.
