Daytripping Mom Giveaway!! AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in Long Beach

If your kiddos are anything like mine they are probably crazy about dogs. My hubby and I also happen to be crazy about them. I love watching the American Kennel Club Dog show and the Westminster Dog show on Animal Planet. This year the show will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center on December 13th and 14th and Daytrippingmom will be giving away a family 4 pack!!

Every year, nearly 3,000 of the world’s top canine competitors from all 50 states and more than 70 countries are invited to vie for Best in Show honors and a total of $225,000 at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship. The event is one of the most highly competitive and exciting events in the canine world. It is held in conjunction with the AKC National Obedience Invitational and AKC Agility Invitational, representing the culmination of a year of competition in three AKC sports: Conformation, Obedience and Agility.

For the second year, the exciting Eukanuba World Challenge competition will feature dogs representing 52 countries from the far reaches of the globe competing for world-wide bragging rights!

One of the most exciting attractions is the AKC Meet the Breeds with over 150 AKC breeds on display for the public to meet and speak with breed experts. The AKC Demonstration ring features fun, educational and exciting demonstrations such as herding with live ducks, agility, obedience and seeing-eye dogs.
