Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association, an area AKC kennel club, is proud to announce its annual dog show, to be held on April 22-23 at the Haywood County Agriculture and Activities Center on Crabtree Road.

The two-day event will run from 8 a.m. until approximately 3 p.m. both days and will include conformation, obedience and rally competitions. An expected 800-900 pre-entered dogs will compete for Best In Show each day.

Non-entered dogs should not attend the event, but the public is welcome to come view the many breeds that will be competing.

Admission is free, but a small parking fee will be collected for visitors to the event. Food concessions will be available for breakfast and lunch items, and several wonderful dog supply vendors will be on site for guests.
