2018 Winter Classic

Thank you to all our attendees, participants, judges and sponsors, watch for hi-lights of the winter classic.

Since the inception of the AKC Winter Classic in 2013, we have developed a strong working relationship with the Spruce Meadows team. Spruce Meadows has gone above and beyond year-after-year, supporting our vision of being a destination dog show, attracting exhibitors, vendors and judges from across the world. 

The 2017 the AKC Winter Classic had 450 entries in various events over three days and included two specialties.  

In 2018, the AKC Winter Classic took place over three days, January 19 to 21, 2018 at Spruce Meadows. We had three all-breed shows, four obedience trials, four rally obedience trials and we are anticipating the same in 2019. 

Our show continues to grow year-over-year, with approximately 1,000 people attending to watch the show, to learn about dogs, dog sport and the dog fancy over the weekend. We believe that public education about the world of purebred dogs is an important role that the AKC Winter Classic are able to provide.

Thank you to our 2018 Ring Side Ads and Sponsors
