The Detroit Kennel Club dog shows will be held Saturday and Sunday at Cobo Hall.
The two-day event brings more than 2,000 dogs from the 167 breeds and varieties recognized by the American Kennel Club. Show highlights include demonstrations, obedience and conformation competition, rare breed exhibits, and high-flying four-legged competitions.
The 108th DKC Show is Saturday and the 109th show follows Sunday. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children (ages 3-12) and seniors (65 and over). Family packs (2 adults, 3 children) cost $40. Discount tickets are available at all Michigan Kroger locations. Tickets will be sold separately for each show and are good only for that day's show.
Dogs will be on display to the public, and demonstrations will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Best in Show will go into the ring at 6 p.m. each day.
