Get ready for the Bluegrass Classic Dog Shows, four days of dog showing with approximately 150 breeds represented, to be held inside the air conditioned Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.
The Bluegrass Classic Dog Shows includes AKC purebred dogs as well as All-American dogs and classes for both beauty and performance. Every breed has a standard by which each dog is judged when competing, and each breed has its own distinctive characteristics. More than 1,500 dogs are scheduled to compete, and spectators will cheer on their favorite breed in hopes that they win their group and go on to win the Best in Show class, which will conclude each day.
There will be plenty for spectators to do, including meeting and talking with breeders, owners and trainers, as well as a chance to wander through the grooming areas to see the various dog breeds up close.
A vendor area will be set up to shop for unique pet supplies. Items sold include dog artwork, T-shirts, dog toys, beds, leashes, collars, crates and exercise pens. Many of the items sold will feature different breeds.
