Weekend Events
  • Thursday & Friday Events: Michigan American Eskimo Dog Club is hosting 2 all-breed shows each day (4 total all-breed).
    • Friday there will be 2 AE specialties embedded into the all-Breed show with Northern group being judged later in the afternoon. This should provide AE exhibitors time to arrive, groom and compete at both specialties. There will be a separate Junior showmanship competition outside of the all- breed.
    • Shows run back to back. The BOB winner from specialties will go in and compete in the Northern Group. We are also looking to have a Northern Group Specialty award- both shows Friday only.
  • Saturday: Nationals with Futurity, Legends of the Rings, Auction, General Meeting, Board Meeting and all the bells & whistles. 
  • Sunday: Two All-Breed Shows.

Michigan will also host one “Best of the Best” winner Sunday after the all-breed BOS’s. This will be a combo of entire weekend winners including All- Breed Best in Shows (6 of them) + (the National Grand and or the BOB winner from the National show (Sat), and the 2 AE Specialty BOB winners (Fri), if different). Normally we ask the Sunday judges to do this (local judges are very familiar with this fun award). This is a combined win of Regular class winners over the weekend, this is a fun class to win if you make that far. We will have a separate NL Puppy “Best of the Best” held after the regular class “Best of the Best”.

Hosted by Michigan American Eskimo Dog Association
