AKC Dog Show this Weekend
The Hub City is going to the dogs this weekend as Jackson plays host to an AKC dog show. Today, the Jackson Dog Fanciers Association and Clarksville Kennel Club began four days of competition at Jackson’s Fairgrounds Park. The show will feature all breeds and handles strutting their stuff for the judges. Those competing say there is something special about this event. “You have to have that bonds with your dog, or it just won’t work in the ring,” said Tracie Para, a contestant. “It is a very special bond there that is about trust. There are a lot of unspoken commands, so we know each others body language. So yes, you have to be very close to your dog.” The show at Jackson’s Fairgrounds Park continues through Sunday and is open to the public.
