Sequim: All-breed dog show set for weekend

SEQUIM — A record number of animals will compete this weekend in the fifth annual Hurricane Ridge Kennel Club’s All-Breed Dog Show and Obedience Trials.

Sanctioned by the American Kennel Club, the event will be held Saturday and Sunday on the open field, just south of Carrie Blake Park.

“We have 955 dogs entered on Saturday and 962 on Sunday,” event Publicist Kelly Ernst said. “That’s the most dogs we’ve ever had for our show.”

Entries are expected from Washington, Oregon and British Columbia.

“Apparently we have a good name,” she said. “We’re friendly and supportive, so people look forward to our show.”

Competition will be conducted in confirmation and obedience.

The 115 various breeds are found in seven specific groups — sporting, hounds, working, terriers, toys, non-sporting and herding — in the confirmation competition.
