WCDFA All Breed Dog Show and Trial
The Western Carolina Dog Fanciers Association (WCDFA), an American Kennel Club member organization, will host its annual All Breed dog show on Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19, 2020.
The event will again be at the Haywood County Agriculture and Activities Center on Crabtree Road (NC209) in Waynesville. The two-day event will run from 8am until approximately 3pm each day, and will include Conformation, Obedience and Rally competitions. Pre-entered dogs will compete for Best in Show each day and a variety of Obedience and Rally awards. (Rally is informally known as “beginning obedience.”).
Well over 100 dogs are expected to compete in the Conformation event, based on participation from prior years. The Obedience and Rally events are anticipated to have minimums of 50 and 20 respectively, again based on prior year’s participation. The Conformation competition is for purebred dogs only, while Obedience and Rally are open to mixed breed as well as purebred dogs.
Dogs that are not competing should not be brought to the event as they can become distractions or even safety hazards for dogs, their handlers, and for spectators. The two-legged public is welcome to come view the many breeds that will be competing and learn about the history and habits of the breeds that interest them. Admission to the event is free, but a small parking fee will be collected for visitors. Food concessions will be on site to provide breakfast and lunch nourishment, and several wonderful dog supply vendors will offer fabulously fidocious items.
