Show & Go Sunday

If you have never been to a Show & Go, here is how it works: Come any time during the time scheduled for your event. No need to make an appointment. For every critique or score sheet you get, you pay $5.00. Each of our judges will take a few minutes to work only with you; offering tips on how to improve your or your dog's performance in the ring! You can go as many times you want to during that event! What a great way to prepare for the upcoming shows! 

Our most recent Show & Go was April 23, 2017. 
Watch for our next date.

Each year, Grand Valley Kennel Club offers premier seminars and workshops focusing on activities such as grooming, training, canine fitness. For example, our most recent seminar was:

Gary Wilkes Seminar - June 24-25, 2017 - This seminar introduces you and your dog to real clicker training, from its creator. You will gain first-hand knowledge of how to shape and control behaviors with precision and maintain great performance, and how to stop behaviors on a dime. This seminar will concentrate on problem solving, Obedience, Rally and Conformation.
