Michigan’s largest dog show, The Michigan Winter Dog Classic, will take place this upcoming January 17th-20th at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.

Host to over 160 breeds, and 7,000 total canine contenders, this exciting four-day show boasts a variety of family-friendly events. It includes:

  • Breed seminars
  • Conformation and obedience judging
  • Educational exhibits and demonstrations
  • Opportunity to view breeds sanctioned by the American Kennel Club and recognized by the Oakland County Kennel Club, the American Kennel Club, and the Livonia Kennel Club.

In addition, don’t miss this year’s “My Dog Can Do That,” an opportunity to work with a number of AKC professional trainers who will help you gauge how your own dog may perform in some of the featured agility events. Each day will consist of individual breed judging, obedience judging, agility judging, group judging, and best in show. Other attractions include “Canine Good Citizen Testing,” “Duck Herding,” and clinics for your healthy hound (eye and reproductive clinics as well as a general health clinic and testing will be available).
