HEART OF THE DESERT CLASSIC
Feb 5 - Feb 9, 2015

Hosted by Lost Dutchman Kennel Club
and Sahuaro State Kennel Club

Each year, 1,000-1,500 dogs participate in our conformation and obedience events.  Our next show will be held as part of a five-day cluster with Sahuaro State Kennel Club.  Lost Dutchman's shows will be held February 2-3, 2014, with Sahuaro State Kennel Club's shows held January 31-February 1, 2014, at the Arizona State Fairgrounds.  Breed Specialty Shows will be held on January 30, 2014.

Spectators are always welcome at our shows! If you would like to explore the world of purebred dogs; see dogs that conform to their respective AKC standards, or just enjoy the teamwork between the participating dogs & their owners, we invite you to attend.  There is no charge to spectators to attend our shows.  We ask only that you please be considerate of our exhibitors and their dogs. In general, most exhibitors prefer to be approached after they have shown their dogs.  Please be mindful that little ones in strollers are right at face-level with many dogs and you should safeguard your child appropriately.  Visit our show vendors and pick up your pet supplies!
