The Lima Kennel Club Show Grounds was filled with hundreds of dogs on their best behavior over the weekend for the 83rd Annual All Breed Dog Show.
You could see a dog being groomed, pampered and pampered in almost any direction at the Lima Kennel Club Dog Show. Over a hundred different dog breeds from across the country were there competing to be “top dog”.
Phil Bokar, president of the Lima Kennel Club, said, âYou look around at the license plates, they’re from New York, North Carolina, Tennessee. People go a long way in bringing their dogs because they want to be proud of their dogs and have the best dog.
One woman, Linda Esterline, traveled from Sycamore to enroll her Doxins in the show. She says she has had dogs her whole life, but the young puppies she now has and competes with are the first purebred dogs registered with the American Kennel Club that she owns. The reason she entered them for the dog show was, why not?
âI just like to do something with my dogs,â says Esterline. âIt’s fun going out, and I’ve had dogs my whole life, and people don’t realize there’s so much more than dog shows. There are a lot of fun things you can do with your dog. dog.
The official term for this type of dog show is called “conformation,” according to the American Kennel Club. The dogs in this show do not compete against each other, but they are rated on how well they conform to their particular breed. This makes them the best, purer breed for their next generation.
Bokar says, âI think you should go to the dog show and look at the different breeds and I think you will be surprised at how many different breeds there are. A lot of people don’t even know certain breeds, and you’ll find one that you might like.
The dog show takes place again tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free, but parking costs five dollars and the public is welcome.
