There will be lure coursing “fun runs” after Best in Show on Friday and Saturday, lots of dog-related vendors, an extensive raffle, and great food.

Lost Coast Kennel Club is an AKC recognized not for profit organization dedicated to responsible dog ownership.
Conformation – An evaluation of a dog’s appearance, structure, and temperament relative to the accepted standard for that particular breed. Shows are a way for dog breeders to have their dogs recognized as ideal breeding stock.
AKC events are not just for pure-bred dogs. Companion events such as Obedience, Rally, Coursing Ability and Agility can be performed by mixed breed dogs through the AKC Canine Partners Program.
Obedience – Illustrates the dog’s ability to follow verbal commands and hand signals from their handler and to interact appropriately with other people and dogs.
Rally – Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler complete a course of 10 – 20 stations that has been designed by a judge. Each station has a sign providing instructions regarding a skill to be performed.
Lure Coursing – Dogs act out their pure predator instincts chasing a lure around a field. Some dogs may hit speeds of 30-40 mph.
