All breeds dog show in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- More than 600 dogs competed at the Yakima Valley Kennel Club All Breeds Dog Show, Obedience Trials and Rally Trials at State Fair Park, over the weekend.

Organizer say turnout at the event has been good the last two years, because of the great weather they've had each time.

"It got rained on about three years ago; and five years ago it was 95 degrees, and that's very hot and kind of a threat, kind of a danger for the dogs," show chairman Richard Lewis explained.

The two-day event drew in hundreds of participants from across the country.

"These people are all competing for points in a 12 month period of time to be the number one dog for their breed, or perhaps number one herding dog or the number one working dog," Lewis said.

Other categories in the competition included, the sporting group, the hound group, the terrier group, the non-sporting group, and the toy group.
