There is a 5 day dog show coming up this week/weekend. It is an all breed show, indoors. The show has free entry for the general public and free parking. It is a great place to take kids to see all the different AKC breeds being groomed and shown for conformance to AKC standards. There are over 1400 dogs registered to show, it's a big show. If anyone from VAO comes by on Friday or Saturday you can ask for me, Doug Chyz, and I will give you a mini tour of the grooming areas and show rings. There will also be a number of dog stuff vendors on site.
