My wife and I are both dog lovers, and she keeps reminding me that we should bring one home to join our family some day. In the meantime, we enjoy living vicariously through our friends and neighbors with nice pups, and this dog show is a lot of fun.
It's the largest dog show series in the West, and one of the largest shows in the U.S., where you can see most breeds and thousands of the best dogs in the country and their human friends in action.
Some of my favorite competitions are the agility events, where athletic breeds like the Portugese water dog show in the first image can really show their stuff. It's also great fun to see the incredible diversity of breeds, including some really rare and intriguing ones.
Tickets are $10/adults or $20 for a family pass (up to 5 people).
Location: Portland Expo Center, 2060 N Marine Dr, Portland
