The Golden Gate Kennel Club Show ranks as one of the most prestigious in the nation. With a history dating back over 100 years, the event is one of the few remaining benched dog events in the country. A benched show means that all exhibiting dogs will be crated together with all other dogs of the same breed. The show includes Conformation, Obedience and Rally. The show is an excellent opportunity to chat with other PWD dog owners or breeders.
