DETROIT (WWJ) – Thousands of four-legged friends and people are packing into Cobo
Center this weekend for the annual Detroit Kennel Club Dog Show.
The event includes new demonstrations, an obedience competition, rare breed exhibits and high-flying four-legged competitions.
Richard Ford, chairman of the Detroit Kennel Club, tells WWJ why people love dogs so much.
“Obviously, very good companions, they’ll always be glad to see you when you come home, they’ll listen to you anytime you have complaints – they never talk back and they are always just there for you,” said Ford.
The Detroit Kennel Club Dog Show will feature about 75 dogs that are breeds not yet recognized by the American Kennel Club.
The show runs Saturday and Sunday. ‘Best in Show’ goes on at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children and seniors.
