FIRST COMPANY GOVERNOR'S FOOT GUARD ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION DOG SHOW AND OBEDIENCE TRIALS
The First Company Governor’s Foot Guard will sponsor the First Company Governor’s Foot Guard Athletic Association Dog Show and Obedience Trials in February. This will be the 82nd edition of this annual event. This year the Foot Guard will be sponsoring two shows; one on February 16 and one on February 17. These are separate shows with different judging and different winners each day. These are AKC sanctioned shows where the dogs will compete for championship points. Saturday’s show is an All breed and Junior Showmanship (AB/JSHW) event and Sunday will be All breed, Obedience and Junior Showmanship (AB/O/JSHW).
Approximately 1100 dogs representing over 140 different breeds from as far away as Texas, Minnesota and California as well as Canada are expected to compete for championship points in each show. This is a great family event for everyone from serious dog enthusiasts, people who want to learn more about dog shows or particular dogs breed to people who just love dogs. Visitors to the show not only get to watch the competition but they can go ‘backstage’ to meet the dogs and their owners/handlers. In the obedience trials, we’ll have some amazing dogs that will awe you with their ability to follow commands. There will also be some vendors with unique dog products at the show.
Some of the proceeds of the show are used to fund scholarships awarded each year to two pre-veterinary students at the University of Connecticut.
