After the Rose City Classic series of dog shows has begun, pre-payment will no longer be an option for exhibitors, and must be arranged in person at the show itself.
The Rose City Classic is dedicated to providing exhibitors the best show environment possible. We work year round to assure a safe and serviceable environment for the comfort of our exhibitors and the welfare of their dogs.
Please note the early entry closing date for our upcoming shows, is January 2, 2013 . The show schedule listing the judging time for each breed and event should be prepared and available online here about a week after closing.

The Rose City Classic hosts 16 independent specialties, most on Wednesday, and numerous supported entries within the all-breed shows. There are 4 days of all-breed dog shows with obedience and agility trials, Thursday through Sunday.
Special events include a
CGC Test on Friday and educational seminars and health clinics throughout the week end.
Meet the Breeds is an exciting new attraction at the Rose City Classic that provides the public a great opportunity to meet local AKC breeders and receive information about a breed they are considering for their family. It will also give them a chance to interact with a given breed and ask questions. Meet the Breeds will be offered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. New breeds awaiting AKC approval will be on display Thursday.
