  • Explore and shop the event’s participating doggie vendors. 
  • See exciting demonstrations, such as “Fast CAT,” a straight line course competition.

Admission and parking are free. The event begins at 8 a.m. and goes until approximately 5 p.m. daily at Mark Coronado Park, 15960 N. Bullard Ave. For more information, please visit   

Dog Show Etiquette

  • Always ask handlers before you pet a dog. Wait until handlers have finished an event before asking questions. 
  • Please turn off or silence any mobile devices as this may be a distraction to the dogs and pet handlers. 
  • Only dogs competing in the show are permitted.
