Whether you want to get a closer look at any particular breed or just a dog lover at heart, we hope to have a good variety of dogs for you to see.
2018 Simple Judging Schedule (for general public) 1 pg. Shows the 7 Breed Groups (Sporting, Hounds, Terriers, Working, Herding, Non-Sporting and Toys) being judged and the number of dogs in the group. The best of each breed, moves on to be judged for best in Group. The best in each of the 7 breed groups are then judged for “Best in Show”.
Sat. October 20th we have the Vancouver Island Toy Dog Club hosting a Specialty Dog Show for dogs in the Toy Breed Group. This starts at 1:00 pm.
If you are wanting to watch a particular breed/group or just Best in Show, come early in case judging wraps up earlier than expected. This is especially important on Sunday as there are fewer breaks in judging.
We have a Halloween Dog Photo Contest that is open to the public. Bring a photo of your dog in a costume by noon on Saturday to the Show Secretary desk and the judging will be done after Best in Show.
Our Halloween Dog Costume Contest/Parade is open only to dogs and their handlers/owners who are registered in the Dog Show. The Parade of participants will take place after Best in Show (approx. 4:00 pm). This event is a crowd pleaser.

Alberni Valley Kennel Club is pleased to support the Lions Foundation of Canada and the Purina Walk for Dog Guides, by participating and donating to the Walk.
We had a chance to meet local Guide Dog, Shadow is a seizure response dog for Kayla Aolick. He is very special to her and gives her the comfort and care to live a more independent life. Kayla wants someone else to get the gift of a dog to make their life better. It takes the donations of many to support the guide dog program. Every little bit helps.
You can still donate online: Port Alberni Purina Walk for Dog Guides
Also at the walk, AV Lions BBQ, Mini Silent Auction, Kids Draw and Bosley’s.
AV Kennel Club challenged all Obedience Class participants (past & present) to donate.
The weather was great and there were lots of dogs. (Congrats to Roberta for walking 4 of her standard poodles.)
If you missed it, be sure to mark it on your calendar for next year.
An entry is $10. per dog/trial. (We will help you schedule multiple dogs &/or schedule you in each trial)
