Dogs and their owners participate in the Rapid City Kennel Club dog show

RAPID CITY, SD (KOTA) — This weekend, the Rapid City Kennel Club is holding its annual All Breed Dog Show at the Monument.

The event is free to the public and invites everyone to enjoy the show, but non-competing dogs are not allowed in the arena.

With 500 registered dogs and approximately 100 different breeds, each dog is judged on its conformation and breeding ability. While also allowing their owners to see how their dog stacks up against the competition.

The show can also provide a future owner with an introduction to the many dog ​​breeds that exist.

“I think the most interesting thing people would learn is how many really different dog breeds there are. There’s a dog for almost every purpose and it’s just fun to see how very divergent they are, at how different they are from each other,” said Katherine Jacobson, dog show chair of the Rapid City Kennel Club Dog Show.
