It’s a real “dog day afternoon”! The Long Island Kennel Club welcomes families and their fur children to the Long Island Island Kennel Club Show. This year’s Long Island Kennel Club show follows the world-famous Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show earlier in the week. Many canine contenders are expected to leave the Big Apple and then head east to compete at the annual spring dog shows in Nassau County. All three shows celebrate everything canine, from impeccable show dogs and trick-dog demonstrations to doggie dock diving and an agility obstacle course. Fun-filled events and attractions make this festival a treat for anyone who loves dogs – that is to say, everyone! Sunday will feature a special demonstration by the NYPD Transit Bureau Canine Unit.

The weekend’s daily activities culminate with the all-breed Conformation judging all three days. Hundreds of superbly presented dogs – coiffed collies, pedicured poodles, dandified Dandie Dinmonts, and other breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club – vie for bragging rights as they contend for Best in Show. All are invited to this parade of pups to cheer on the winner of the coveted ribbon.

K-9 Police Dog demonstration (Sunday only, 11 a.m.). Members of the NYPD Transit Bureau Canine Unit will show how their dogs take down perpetrators and respond to their handlers’ commands.

AKC’s My Dog Can Do That!: A professional instructor will help your dog navigate tunnels and jumps, just like those high-powered agility dogs on television.

Canine Good Citizen and Trick Dog tests: Does your dog have what it takes to be a good canine citizen? Can your hound give a high five? Testers will be on hand to see if your dog makes the grade.

Dock Diving: It’s the latest water sport for dogs! Watch water-obsessed pupsters compete for longest and highest distance. A professional will be on hand to teach your pooch how to make a splash.

Dog Shows: From toys and terriers to herders and hounds, watch these professional pooches strut their stuff.

Ask a Breeder: This is your chance to meet local purebred breeders and ask them anything you’ve always wanted to know about your specific breed.

Chow: Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Vendors: Take some pooch-centric goodies back to your dog house.
