“The Any and All Dog Show is one of our favorite events and we are excited about this year’s show – and we’ve added two new classes,” says Karl Alexander, TR&HC board member and Committee Chair. “It is a great way to engage the community and we use our proceeds to give back to some of our local charities.”


The show has a proven track record of family fun bringing big smiles to everyone.  Participants have many classes to choose from and ribbons will be awarded to winners in each class.  To help your pup prepare for the show, the following is a list of classes:


  • Biggest and Smallest

The AADS is one of TR&HC’s historic community events that is now in its’ 89th year!   In addition to the classes, the show also will feature a petting zoo, food trucks and face painters.
