Howard County Fairgrounds, West Friendship, MD
Southern Maryland Kennel Club 2 Day Show -January 2020
2 All Breed Dog Shows - Friday and Saturday
In 2018, SMKC joined with other clubs to put on the Blue Crab Cluster at the Howard County Maryland Fairgrounds grounds in West Friendship, MD. The cluster gives participants and spectators alike, an opportunity to participate in 4 all-breed dog shows in one place with air-conditioned facilities, and close lodging and RV access.
The 2017, 2018 and 2019 Shows were a rousing success and we will have surprises in store for 2020.
The premium list for 2018 will be available through Infodog or the links below:
Judging Programs for the 3 days are available at Jim Rau Dogs Shows Website
Programs will have breed and ring times so you can come see your favorite dog breeds.
The shows start early so please check the Program schedule so you don't miss your dog.
Specialty and Supported Entries
The SMKC Show also presents opportunities to smaller dog breed clubs to have a Specialty Show or Supported Entries in a large facility that may bring in more dogs for their breed. This benefits not only the smaller clubs but also makes the 5 day cluster a better opportunity for dogs to get the most points toward titles.
Junior Showmanship Seminar
Every year SMKC puts on a free seminar for junior handlers. Experienced judges share information on how to present themselves and their dogs in the best possible light. Activities like this are just some of the seminars given during the 2 Day SMKC Show.
