cow palaceKCUSA is pleased to announce that the premium list for this Open Show at the Cow Palace in Daly City, CA, is now available online. It will be held in conjunction with the Golden Gate Kennel Club Benched All Breed Show.
While KCUSA is not offering Obedience or Rally as part of the Open Show, those activities are available through the Golden Gate Kennel Club All Breed Show and everyone who wishes to enter their rare breed dogs in those competitions can do so.
This Open Show is being held concurrent with the All Breed Show, not afterwards. Misc breeds may enter the Open Show and Misc Classes both days. FSS Breeds may enter the Open Show on Saturday the 24th and then enter for exhibit only on Sunday the 25th. This is a great opportunity to meet hundreds of spectators and answer questions at one of the West Coast’s premier dog show venues.

ANNUAL SPECIALTY: WHAT A WEEKEND IT WAS

Dear KCUSA members, specialty participants, visitors, judges and guests,

What a weekend it was. We had the largest concentration of Kooikerhondjes in North America ever. Our first ever produced and printed Show Catalog held 50 dogs listed by age group. How exiting to see so many Kooikers in one place. We did steal the show …

Read on for the complete note of thanks from KCUSA’s president, Jac Knoop.
