The Wichita Kennel Club has added a fourth day to its annual all-breed event, the Sunflower Cluster Dog Show, which will be held this year at Century II Convention Center in downtown Wichita. (It used to be held at the Kansas Coliseum Pavilions each year.)
Admission is free, and it looks like it will be a great free family activity with the kids. Dogs will have to stay at home unless they’re entered in the show. Event organizers also request that strollers not be used inside (too many wagging tails that could be rolled over).
This is an all-breed dog show by the American Kennel Club. Events and activities will include:
- All-breed conformation shows
- Obedience trials
- Rally obedience trials
- Handler competitions
- Breed seminars
- Canine Good Citizen testing
- and more
Something significant about this show is that the Sunflower Cluster Dog Show was one of the first in the country to open the competition to mixed-breed dogs in the obedience, agility, and rally events. (I’m of uncertain ancestry myself, so I think this is cool. )
The 2019 Sunflower Cluster Dog Show will be held Thursday, April 4 through Sunday, April 7. Admission is free.
