Long Beach Convention Center

We have just one day off this week before the fun starts again.  The big day approaches.  No, not Christmas, but the dog show equivalent, the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, this coming weekend, December 4th & 5th, in Long Beach CA.  At our doctors’ and family’s request we will be covering the event from our family room this year, but fear not, we will have several reporters on scene to give you all the details.

The main dance will be preceded by three days of merriment, starting Wednesday with the Kennel Club Of Beverly Hills, the Los Encinos Kennel Club, & the Long Beach Kennel Club all breed shows.  All of the events will take place at the massive Long Beach Convention Center.  There will be over 2300 Champions and Grand Champions representing the best of 167 breeds at Saturday and Sunday‘s main event.  Few venues rival the spectacle.

However, because of a quirk in the schedule, there will be rival events elsewhere in the US.  Down in Savannah GA, the Savannah Kennel Club & the Beaufort Kennel Club will team up for four shows starting Thursday.  While they will not match the Long Beach show in glitz or numbers, with almost 3700 dogs entered they will draw some big names.  Yuma AZ and the Yuma Kennel Club & the Imperial Valley Kennel Club will also host four days of canine competition starting Friday.

There will be standard Saturday/Sunday fare in Fitchburg MA with the Worcester County Kennel Club, in Kankakee IL, a hour south of Chicago, with the Kankakee River Valley Kennel Club, in Belleville IL, 20 miles east of St Louis, with the Edwardsville Illinois Kennel Club and in Conroe TX, 40 miles north of Houston, with the Conroe Kennel Club.

If you are anywhere near southern California, we encourage you to get to the Long Beach convention center this weekend for the one of a kind AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.  You won’t better quality purebred dogs anywhere in the world nor more variety in breeds anywhere in the US.  Be sure to check back with us frequently this week as we bring you results on the weekday events and frequent updates during the weekend.
