Paw Prints In The Sand Dog Show This Weekend

The Boca Raton Dog Club and Jupiter/Tequesta Dog Club have joined forces once again to bring dog lovers the annual Paw Prints in the Sand Summer Cluster Dog Show.

Thousands of dogs and their owners will get the chance to strut their stuff in the show ring from Thursday, July 11 through Sunday, July 14 at the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The event is great for the whole family with just a $5 parking fee and a $5 admission fee. Children under 12 are admitted free.

Spectators can meet and greet a variety of different dog breeds. Visitors can learn about responsible dog ownership and speak with breeders, owners and handlers. They can also watch dogs test their extreme water skills in dock diving competitions, as well as watch the judging of various breeds in conformation.

Attendees can also see young owner-handlers compete against their peers in the Junior Showmanship Competition and watch owner-handlers compete in a special series called the National Owner-Handled Series. These exhibitors are striving for a spot in the finals at the AKC National Championship in Orlando in December.
