Top Dogs Prepare for Erie Show

Posted: Updated:

Some of the top dogs in our region and from around the nation will be competing for honors this weekend at Erie's Bayfront Convention Center. Crews were busy setting up today.

 About 850 dogs, representing 134 breeds are registered for the Erie Kennel Club annual show. Today a few dogs and their handlers were practicing for the show ring and the obedience competition.

 Owners say it takes thousands of hours of practice to compete for best in show. And for local owners, it is challenging to be in front of a home town crowd.

 Dog Owner Melanie Shufran said, "It is probably because you are home, more nerve wracking than when you are away because there are more people you know watching you."

Some of the dogs in Erie this weekend will head to New York City next month to compete in the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club show.
