ROCKFORD (WIFR) -The Stephenson County Fairgrounds has Gone to the Dogs this weekend.
More than 900 dogs are taking part in the Rockford-Freeport kennel club dog show this weekend. Dogs are judged on everything from how they look to how well they follow directions. Many of the people competing this weekend use this as a warm up to national shows like the Westminster Dog Show.
“For a class of say Golden Retrievers you may have 30 or 40 dogs, the dog that gets best of breed will achieve 30 or 40 or however breed points. Those points are tallied up at the end of the year and that determines the dogs’ national ranking and that’s how they qualify for the large shows to get invited to." Dog Show Judge
You can check out the dog show tomorrow... It runs from 8 in the morning until 5 in the evening out at the Stephenson County Fairgrounds.
