PoodleGeneral Information

The Rose City Classic is recognized as one of the top dog show series in the nation. That’s why many of the best dogs in America and even dogs from foreign countries travel to Portland each January to compete.

The Rose City Classic is typically held on the third week end of January. About a week before the show date, the judging schedule for each breed and event will be available and posted online in the menu bar to the right.

For information about the shows and trials hosted by Dog Fanciers Association of Oregon on Friday and Saturday, or by the  Tualatin Kennel Club on Thursday and Sunday, see the premium list posted in the menu bar, or contact their show chairs, Patti Strand for DFAO or  Dianne Kroll  for Tualatin. For information about the specialties (individual breed shows) on Wednesday, contact specialty coordinator, Patti Strand. The clubs of the Rose City Classic Series of Dog Shows appreciate the ongoing support from Royal Canin and Eukanuba, the exclusive pet food supporter of the Rose City Classic. We could not host such great shows without their backing. Dog Fanciers Association of Oregon is the host club of the Rose City Classic Series of Dog Shows. It was founded in 1939 and is a member club of the American Kennel Club. DFAO is an all-breed kennel club offering competition for all AKC recognized breeds in conformation, obedience and agility. DFAO is centered in Multnomah County.

Tualatin Kennel Club is the other all-breed club that makes up the Rose City Classic. It is also a member club of the AKC. TKC hosts events for conformation, obedience and agility and provides numerous community services. Its membership is centered in the Tualatin Valley and Washington County.

The Portland Dog Obedience Club focuses on dog training, obedience trials and the new AKC sport of Rally. PDOC is a member of American Kennel Club and holds one of its annual obedience trials in conjunction with the Rose City Classic.
