Kennel Club Of Philadelphia Will Once Again Hold Its Annual All-Breed Dog Show

KENNEL CLUB OF PHILADELPHIA WILL ONCE AGAIN

HOLD ITS ANNUAL ALL-BREED DOG SHOW IN NOVEMBER –

WITH SOME TIMELY ADJUSTMENTS

PHILADELPHIA  –  In a 2020 dog show calendar filled with cancellations and postponements, the Kennel Club of Philadelphia is stepping up to add to its rich history that dates back to 1879 by once again holding its annual all-breed dog show in November in Oaks, Penn.

With full attention being given to state and local health and safety issues for activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, and under the approving guidance of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners and the County Health Department, the club will stage a single, two-day show on Nov. 14-15 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.

The unique needs and circumstances for dog shows and its participants will be in full consideration, with the American Kennel Club’s guidelines for best practices in the pandemic aiding the club, as well.

There will be some visible and necessary changes and adjustments over recent shows. Among the changes for this year:

  • In recent years, the club has held two dog shows on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday. This year, the club will hold just one show divided over those two days.

  • The show will be limited to a total of 400 dogs (200 each day).

  • All entries must be AKC champions.

  • Four groups will be held on Saturday, three groups and Best In Show on Sunday.

  • There will be $20,000 offered in prize money.

  • Unlike normal years, the show will be unbenched.

  • There will be no spectators allowed and no vendors on hand.

  • Shows normally held on the Thursday and Friday prior to the KCP show, Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association, and Penn Treaty Kennel Club, will not be held.

The Kennel Club of Philadelphia and its predecessors have been hosting shows since 1876, with today’s version of the KCP having been held first in 1879 and continuously since 1934. Beginning in 1996, the club has staged two dog shows each year on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday in mid-November.

Dates for the opening of the entry process and closing date will be announced soon by the show superintendent, MB-F. For more information, contact the superintendent or watch the MB-F website at infodog.com.
