**UPDATE:  After looking at this event, Orlando Canine Connections has decided NOT to support it.  The name of the event is Celebrate Dogs, but they don’t allow you to bring your own dog.  I guess you are supposed to celebrate all dogs except for your own.  We support events that focus on events that allow you to enjoy the event with your dog in order to strengthen the human, dog relationship.  The other issue is that no rescues are allowed.  I’m not sure how you can ‘Celebrate Dogs’ when you don’t allow rescues.  My guess is that rescues are not allowed because they are in direct conflict with the AKC, the main sponsor of the event. 

Celebrate Dogs is coming to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando on December 15 – 16.

Whether your interest is in the AKC Agility Invitational, AKC National Obedience Invitational, DockDogs®, or the daytime breed judging of the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, this family-friendly event offers activities for all ages to enjoy.

Marvel at our Eukanuba SuperDogs® as they entertain in the K-9 Fun Zone and visit 150 AKC Meet the Breed® booths. Also, stop by the Canine Shopping Mall featuring a variety of doggie boutiques to fill your holiday shopping needs.

With more than 800,000 square feet of canine-centric activities to experience, Celebrate Dogs! will be Orlando’s “paw-ty” of the year. We look forward to seeing you there!
