A Doggone Good Weekend In Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--Yakima was for the dogs this weekend.

Nearly 1,000 dogs came out for the Yakima Valley Kennel Club's Dog Show.  150 different breeds competed this weekend.

The show's chairman said trainers devote hundreds of hours to caring for their pooch.  He adds that dog shows might be a good place for you to find your next pet.

"These are the pros, these are the people who are serious about each breed," Dog Show Chairman Richard Lewis said.  "You may find a breed you weren't thinking about by coming here."

The show brings people from all over the Northwest.

It's one of Yakima's oldest sporting events .
