I was contacted privately for AKC show information. I thought I could server more pwners by making it a State Forum thread. There are a couple of larger AKC shows in the area that seem to be well thought of by show dog owners. One is in Witchita; KS - Sunflower ?. The other AKC show is the Ozarks " Springfield, MO. The biggest and best shows have ample parking for RVs and trailers, etc. for the pets, and ample parking for the public. These shows also offer tons of amenities for the show dogs. You don't find NYC size shows in the heartland with out a lot of amenities and conveniences for the dogs and handlers. It is one of the reasons regional shows are small. Field Trials and obedience trials may be AKC sanctioned, but they are not held at the same time the show dog competition. Shutzhund obedience/personal protection training.is by dog club that hold trials. AFAiK, it is not an AKC sanctioned event, although it is not unusual to find a Shutzhund dog who is an AKC Field or Obedience winner, or is a regular visitor to schools and nursing homes.

Warning: This the official AKC site. It is slow to load and not particularly user friendly. Be patient.
The calendar is for the 2009 show year. Springfield Mo, Benton, Fayetteville, Hot Springs and Little Rock are still on the schedule for this year. The St.Louis show may not be until January 2010. The Hot Springs National Park show looks like it should be good one.
