Purebred breeders across the Midwest traveled to the Iowa State fairgrounds September 8-10 to partake in the annual Des Moines Kennel Club and Obedience Club A.K.C. Dog show. Over 2,000 dogs took part in the three day competition. Dogs were placed in categories of obedience and rally, demonstrations, and Jr. showmanship.
A member of the Monthaven Cockers and a competitor in the show, Jeannie Montanelli, stated that she has been participating for as long as she could remember.
The event was held in the William C. Knapp Varied Industries Building and was sponsored by Principal Financial Group. The show is held annually every September.
