STARKVILLE- The Golden Triangle Kennel Club of Mississippi will host its annual licensed conformation shows, obedience and rally trials at the Mississippi Horse Park on January 13-14 beginning at 8:30 a.m. both mornings. Admission is free.

The GTKCM is an all-breed club with an interest in the sport of purebred dogs, responsible ownership and general canine companionship. This non-profit organization is licensed by the American Kennel Club and brings a wide variety of breeds and classes to each show along with an impressive panel of judges.

“Contestants travel from all over the country to compete in the dog show. The GTKCM does a great job, and the quality of the show is recognized by the growth in contestants this year,” said Bricklee Miller, facility manager. “It’s exciting to see an annual event not only succeed but continue to attract new attendees each year.”

Multiple vendors will have unique dog-related items for purchase. The only dogs allowed on the grounds are those entered in the competition. All events will be held inside on the arena floor.

The concession stand will open so attendees may plan to stay the entire day to watch their favorite breeds battle it out for best in class. For a full schedule of specific breed times, visit www.mshorsepark.com.
