They’ll be benched for inspection from 9 a.m.  to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $8 for children and seniors, and $40 for a family pass that covers two adults and three children. Get tickets here.

For the entry fee, visitors can also enjoy various displays of mighty dog strength and agility. Watch the rare breed exhibit, see terrier racing, sheep herding, K9 demonstrations, Flygility and Flyball teams.
