FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Tuesday evening, over 75 dogs competed in the American Kennel Club’s Pure Breed Dog Showcase during the Three Rivers Festival.
The dogs competed in a series of competitions, including an Obedience Demonstration.
The event was hosted by the Northeast Indiana Kennel Club and gave festival goers the chance to ask questions about the various dog breeds.
“When the kids get the chance to see a dog that they may never had ever seen before. They go up to the owners, they can pet these dogs again know that dogs aren’t scary. They are great around the house, some of these dogs can help around the farm and they can learn all about these things. I love that,” said Carrie Wellman, Northeast Indiana Kennel Club.
The Three Rivers Festival continues through Saturday.
