You could not have asked for a better day in Los Angeles to have a dog match at Woodley Park in Van Nuys. Sunny and gorgeous out with temperatures in the high 70’s, low 80’s. The park offered lots of shade trees for the participants to mingle with their friends when they were not in the ring.
For the Beverly Hills Kennel Club, the match was one of the largest turnouts they have ever had. This match had a total of 168 entries.
The dogs were all well behaved and even enjoyed the tunes of Michael Jackson emanating from the adjacent party at the park.
Watching how well behaved the obedience and rally dogs were makes one wonder, could my dog do this so effortlessly.
There were 5 juniors that put on an outstanding performance.
Many breeds were represented including some not so common breeds that you don’t see very often at the Dog Shows. There must have been about seven adorable Rough Coated Jack Russell Terriers. This was quite a large turnout at a match for this breed.
Taking home a Saluki Best of Breed and a Group 3 was fun.
Seven Group winners all beautiful representations of their breed went competed in Best In Match under judge Carl Anderson. There was a Whippet, Samoyed, English Springer Spaniel, Schipperke, Belgian Sheepdog, Chihuahua and a Lakeland Terrier.
Best In Match went to a Samoyed puppy, who was a natural in the ring. What pizzazz this puppy had.
