General Information

Obedience 2014

The Club’s premiere annual event is an outdoor All-Breed Dog Show and Obedience Trial held in May at the spacious and beautiful  Mercer County Park Festival Grounds in West Windsor Township, New Jersey.

The 2016 show had a total entry of over 2200 dogs that represented 173 different breeds and varieties, with 112 Obedience and 82 Rally entries. This show is the largest annual all-breed show on the east coast.

In addition to exhibitors, each year’s show draws thousands of local spectators, who enjoy not only the excitement of pure-bred dog competition, but also an incredible array of vendors offering great food and plentiful shopping for almost every kind of dog-related item you can imagine.
