Since the very first shows in 1916, the Detroit Kennel Club has been presenting its annual all-breed dogs shows for dog enthusiasts to showcase the very best of pure-bred dogs. These family-friendly shows are open to the public, and we hope that you will join us!
On this site you will find some helpful information to make the most of your DKC Dog Show experience, including ticket prices, parking information, and some Frequently Asked Questions that you may have, too.
What time are my favorite dogs showing?
To see what time your favorite breeds will be on-site, we recommend the Judging Times by Breed link below. This listing shows all the dog breeds who are entered on both Saturday and Sunday, and includes the time they are expected to show, as well as the ring they will be shown in. Print it and bring it with you for a handy reference!
If you are looking for more detailed information, select the Full Judging Program from the list below, which will include the judges’ information, etc. for each breed.
Additionally, a 2023 DKC Show Catalog will be available for purchase for enthusiasts who want to track the winners of the individual breed competitions all the way through to Best in Show, have access to detailed information about each dog entered, and more. A show catalog is a GREAT way to help you find contact information for people who currently own, show, and breed dogs.
If you have questions about how to use the catalog to get the most out of your purchase, don’t hesitate to stop by the Information Booth, which is located directly across from the Main Entrance.
