The Rose City Classic Series of Dog Shows is one of the largest and most popular dog events in the United States. It spans 5 days, starting with Individual Breeds and Group Specialty Shows on Wednesday, followed by 4 days of all-breed dog shows representing more than 185 individual breeds. It features top notch performance and companion events such as agility, obedience, Rally®, Canine Good Citizen and even the new AKC event, Trick Dogs.

These shows are hosted by Dog Fanciers Association of Oregon (DFAO), and the Tualatin Kennel Club (TKC) two AKC clubs that have served the greater Portland area for more than 70 and 40 years, respectively.

The Rose City Classic Meet-the-Breeds Showcase is a fun and exciting opportunity for breed clubs and fanciers to introduce their breeds to the public. It’s one of the few chances responsible hobby breeders have to provide local families with good information and a hands-on experience with their breed.  Meet the Breeds will be offered on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In previous years more than 70 breed clubs have participated and we expect more every year.

PSNEA is an exhibitor in the Meet-the-Breeds Showcase
