Kennel club to hold annual dog show in Omaha

November 3, 2013 by  

The Lewis and Clark Dog Show is taking place in Omaha over two days this month. The show is a presentation of the Council Bluffs Kennel Club.

Several competitions are taking place during the show, including obedience, rally, and conformation trials. Dog owners can have their pets microchipped for $35 each and take them to CERF and Cardiac Auscultation Clinics for examinations. The first day of the show will also feature a costume contest; for a $5 entry fee participants can compete in three size-based categories for such titles as ‘Most Creative’ and ‘Best Look-a-like with Pet Parent’.

Vendors will also be on hand selling a variety of items, such as dog food and toys, or highlighting services from businesses such as boarding kennels and veterinary practices. Several dog clubs and human societies are also expected to set up booths to provide information to visitors. Booths can be rented from $225 to $800 for commercial vendors or from $125 to $200 for non-profit organizations.

Organizers have no doubt contacted Omaha printing companies to provide them with products such as printed ribbons for competition winners, or banners to decorate vendor’s tables. They may also invest in flyers to advertise the show in nearby communities.

The Lewis and Clark Dog Show is taking place at the CenturyLink Center Omaha from November 16 to 17. Admission is $7 for adults or free for children aged 12 and under. To find out more information, call 402-455-6496.
