The Idaho Capital City Kennel Club holds two AKC sanctioned shows, two practice matches, three stand-alone
obedience and rally trials, and three stand alone agility trials each year. Dogs come from all over the West, some
from much further away, to compete for conformation championship titles, obedience titles, rally titles, and
agility titles. Handlers are all ages, including Junior Showmanship. Our shows and matches are governed by
the rules of the American Kennel Club (AKC).
ICCKC members co-ordinate with members of another southern Idaho kennel club to hold back to back
shows on four consecutive days in October at Expo Idaho in Boise known as the "Treasure Valley Dog Shows". Contact
Onofrio Dog Shows for entries and information.
The Treasure Valley Dog Shows bring top dogs to Idaho. The competitions are open to dogs
registered with the American Kennel Club. These dog shows usually draw over 1200 dogs of at least 125 different
varieties, approximately half from our own area, and the rest from across the country.
Conformation rings, grooming room, and dog product vendors are in the main buildings of the Fairgrounds.
Obedience rings are in the Small Animal Building; Rally is under the cover outdoors on the north side of
the obedience building; Agility is in the covered Draft Horse Barn.

Note: Only dogs entered in competition are allowed on the showgrounds, so please leave your pet
at home. Always ask the owner or handler's permission before petting a dog. If an exhibitor is getting ready
to go into the ring, ask them if you can talk to them later when they have more time.
