Looking for Something Different to Do this Weekend???

PLEASE DO EMAIL. THIS IS INFORMATIONAL ONLY... PASSING IT ON IN CASE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS INTERESTED...

This (see below) is one of (if not the largest) Dog Shows in NJ... Over a thousand dogs and puppies! Fun for kids and adults... Thinking of getting a dog and want to meet TOP Breeders? Not sure which kind is "right" for you? Just want to hang out and watch? Go here... they will have "Conformation" for all Breeds (that's the beauty pagent part - LOL) as well as competition "Dog Sports" like Agility, Rally and Obedience. One thing - I recommend you do not bring your dog to the show unless you are already aware of and can comply with the rules about this... they are strict on this point.
The shows are 5 days - indoors and out. Shows are usually rain or shine, but can be cancelled if there is severe weather. There are usually also tons of vendors at big shows like this selling everything "doggie" from art to leashes to treats...
