2019 Summer Classic August 2-5, 2019 at Spruce Meadows!

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 2018 AKC Summer Classic had 5,000 entries in the various events we hosted over the four days of the show. In conformation alone there were 2,500 dogs entered over the four days with another 1,100 entries in the 24 specialties (breed specific and group specialties) that we hosted. We also accommodated 28 vendors in selling their wares and services that weekend. 

In 2019, the Summer Classic show will take place over four days, August 2 to 5, 2019 at Spruce Meadows. We have four all-breed shows, four obedience trials, six rally obedience trials, six agility trials, and two scent hurdle trials. In 2018 there were 24 specialties booked and we are anticipating the same in 2019.

Our show continues to grow year-over-year, with approximately 2,500 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 and Summer Classic's are able to provide.
