Decatur, Ala. – Hosted by the Decatur Alabama Kennel Club and The Huntsville Kennel Club, the Cotton Cluster Dog Shows are set for November 8-11, 2012 at the Morgan County Celebration Arena. Dogs ranging from puppy to the most experienced show dog will make their way to North Alabama to compete for the coveted title of “Best in Show”.
The Cotton Cluster Dog Shows are considered one of the largest area dog shows licensed by the American Kennel Club. Last year, over 1,200 dogs from all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico entered and competed. The Sheltie Club of North Alabama and The Poodle Club of Alabama will have their Designated Specialty Shows as in previous years, and new for this year, the Dachshund Club of Alabama will hold two concurrent shows.
Shows are held daily and spectators are welcome to attend. On Saturday, the Huntsville Kennel Club will award a $2000 scholarship for Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine to a student from northern Alabama.
A dog show such as the Cotton Cluster provides the perfect opportunity to pick your next “best friend.” Event organizers encourage anyone considering the purchase of a purebred dog to attend the Cotton Cluster Dog Shows and talk one-on-one with exhibitors about their breed. Admission is free. A small parking fee of $5 will be charged daily. The Morgan County Celebration Arena is located at 67 Horse Center Road (off Highway 67 East) in Decatur.
