2019 Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show?  This is the place to start!

When is it?

Saturday and Sunday, March 9 & 10, 2019, with doors open to the public at 8:00 am.

It will be a beehive of activity from 8:00 am until noon, when most rings will break for lunch. The show rings continue in the afternoon as the show’s elimination tournament continues. If you have particular breed(s) that you want to see compete, refer to the Judging Program (once it’s been published), lest you miss them entirely! Group judging of the Best of Breed winners will begin in the mid-afternoon (usually between 2:00 and 3:00 pm). Best in Show judging will be held between 5:00 and 6:00 pm.

In a word, yes!  New for 2019, were are allowing some number of well-behaved dogs to visit the event.  We are still working through the logistics of exactly what this will look like; please check back as the show approaches to get the latest details on visiting with your family’s four-legged member.
