A Recap of the Logansport Kennel Club Dog Show

Last weekend, March 12th and 13th, I went out to explore an event that gathered hundreds of dog-lovers and their furry friends into one building: The Logansport Kennel Club Dog Show! While “hundreds” may be a vague descriptor, the specific numbers are the following: there were 943 entries on Saturday and 956 entries on Sunday of the dog show! Wow!

One of those competitors happened to be Hunter, a 14-year-old handler from Lima, OH. She has been involved with dog shows for many years! At the Logansport Kennel Club Dog Show, Hunter showed Banjo, a Bernese mountain dog. Though Banjo is much larger than the majority of other canine competitors at the show, he is surprisingly just a puppy and was competing in the 6 to 9 month age group!

Brenda, Hunter’s mom, spoke of how important it is for both Hunter and the dogs to enjoy competing, as she groomed Tilly, a 1-year-old Newfoundland. She stressed the necessity of the dog shows being fun above all else, as they aren’t able to win every competition. They will be traveling to numerous upcoming dog shows, including two in Wisconsin and Tennessee!

The breeds that received Best in Show at the AKC Registered Dog Show were Rottweiler (Best in Show on Saturday), Staffordshire Bull Terrier (Reserve Best in Show on Saturday), Treeing Walker Coonhound (Best in Show on Sunday), and a Wire Fox Terrier (Reserve Best in Show on Sunday)!

The National Military History Center was the perfect location for the dog show to be held, as it was spacious enough to accommodate 6 show rings, which were provided by Roy Jones Dog Shows!
