Tail-wagging fun takes over at Michigan’s largest dog show, The Michigan Winter Dog Classic, Jan. 20-23, at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, Mich. The event is hosted by the Livonia Kennel Club and the Oakland County Kennel Club.
“This is a great event for families because we have so many special attractions,” says show chairman Alan Dorfman.
Special features include the Rock n Roll K9 Performance Teams and Rescue Row, an area where rescue groups offer information about dogs available for adoption. “It is an excellent way for people to learn more about a breed and perhaps consider adopting a dog in search of a new home,” Dorfman says.
More than 6,000 dogs representing 167 breeds will compete at the four-day dog show, which includes an all-new beginner Puppy Special Attraction on Saturday. The new event encourages owners to show puppies 4 to 6 months and is expected to be one of the show’s highlights.
The Michigan Winter Dog Classic will also offer visitors a chance to meet actor Jon Provost, who played Timmy in the original “Lassie” television series from 1957-1964. Provost will be available to meet fans Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will sell copies of his book “Timmy’s in the Well: The Jon Provost Story.”
