Sierra-Tuolumne Kennel Club’s 2017 All Breed AKC dog show will be held October 14 and 15 at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds in Sonora CA.

Classes are offered for all breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club as well as those in the Miscellaneous Class awaiting recognition. Follow the progression as the winner in each breed goes on to compete in their respective Group: Sporting, Working, Terrier, Toy, Hound, Non-Sporting and Herding. The winner of each Group competes for BEST IN SHOW!

Each day, Saturday and Sunday, is it’s own show and the dog that won Saturday is not necessarily the winner Sunday.

Also check out the Barn Hunt where dogs of all breeds and mixed breeds hunt for contained rats hidden within a maze of straw bales. The dog that finds the rats the fastest is the winner, but any dog finding the rat within the allotted time has Qualified.  The rats are safe inside heavy plastic tubes.

Barn Hunt!

Barn Hunt










Offered on Saturday only, is the popular “Baby Puppy” competition for puppies from 4 to 6 months of age and not quite old enough for the regular show classes. Come watch our Future Stars of the show ring.

And don’t miss the return of STKC’s Obedience and Rally trials both Saturday and Sunday in the Manzanita Building.

STKC is proud to offer the American Kennel Club’s Dog Show Patch program at our 2017 show. This program was developed for the AKC by a lifetime Girl Scout and dog show exhibitor for all youth – Scouts, 4H, church groups, etc. For our 2017 show we will be inviting local Girl Scout Troops to participate. For more information on the Dog Patch program, click this link.

We will again be raffling a beautiful quilt, handmade and donated by Linda Pacholl.


We’ll see you at the Dog Show!!
