There are almost 1000 entries of “man’s best friend” looking their finest and behaving their best, and their owners and handlers hoping for the ultimate prize of “Best in Show.”

The Prescott Valley Event Center was chosen for the convenience of the location, as it is close to hotels and restaurants, and because the Event Center has the capacity to hold the show indoors, making it more comfortable for show participants and their dogs. Admission is free, Parking $5.
