Dog Show

The Montgomery Kennel Club holds two AKC sanctioned All Breed Dog shows annually.  The shows are open to the public with free admission and are held at the Garrett Coliseum. This year’s Montgomery Kennel Club shows will be held on November 26-27, 2021.

Also, The Cahaba Valley Kennel Club Show will follow the next day with its show on Sunday, November 28, 2021.

The shows offer both conformation & obedience competition. New for the second year, the shows will include Scent Work trials, Fast Cat coursing competition.

Scent Work is a sport that mimics the task of working detection dogs to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found. Real-life detection dogs are trained to search for a variety of things–drugs, explosives, human remains, currency, other contraband, living humans (such as for Search and Rescue), and much more.

FAST CAT® – which stands for Coursing Ability Test – is a timed 100-yard dash where dogs run one at a time, chasing a lure. It’s over before you know it — and it’s nothing short of awe-inspiring to watch a dog run at top speed, ears back, eyes focused, legs strong.

These shows are a wonderful opportunity to see the various levels of dog
training and to enjoy the beauty of a sound, healthy, well-bred animal. The
public can learn about different breeds of dogs by visiting with the
exhibitors and breeders at the show.

Our Shows Superintendent is Jack Onofrio Dog Shows, LLC.
