The Columbia Basin Dog Training Club and the Richland Kennel Club will have an all-breed Dog Show, Obedience Trial and Rally Trial on Saturday and Sunday at Columbia Park in Kennewick.
More than 1,000 canine competitors from across the Northwest are expected at the event, which includes the Columbia Basin Dog Training Club's Obedience and Rally trials and the Richland Kennel Club's All-Breed Dog Show.
In Rally-O, which is a relatively new sport, the dog and handler compete over a course completing obedience tasks at designated stations along the course. Unlike traditional obedience classes, communication from the handler to the dog is encouraged and not penalized.
The events start at 8 a.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Showing will finish mid-afternoon, although the show site is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day.
