DON’T MISS A Virtual Dog Show for Charity!
The American Heart Association’s Healthy Bond for Life™ International Heart Classic Virtual Dog Show

Don’t miss your opportunity to compete at the first virtual dog show of its kind while helping the American Heart Association encourage more people to develop a bond with a pet.

The International Heart Classic Virtual Dog Show will be judged by over 130 of the best judges in the world. The show is sponsored by the Lone Star Classic Kennel Clubs. Purina Pro Plan will provide prizes to winners, and David Frei is the spokesperson for the event.

Entries open May 31st and close on June 19, 2020.

International Heart Classic Virtual Dog Show.

Follow this link for more information: https://www.heart.org/en/healthy-living/healthy-bond-for-life-pets/international-heart-classic-virtual-dog-show

Registration is open May 29 through June 17 via Executive Dog Shows. Please check back here for a registration link on May 29.

Once you register, you’ll receive an email with next steps and instructions, including filming and submitting a video of your dog.

Why a virtual dog show? With many professional dog shows and events cancelled due to the pandemic, those involved in the sport have fewer options for engaging with each other and showing off their star canines. The International Heart Classic Virtual Dog Show provides a safe and fun way to compete and stay active within the community.

The International Heart Classic is part of the Healthy Bond for Life initiative, which encourages the bond between people and pets for better health and well-being and longer lives. Pets can help you get more exercise, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, cut stress and boost happiness. With stress more prevalent than ever, now is a perfect time to celebrate all that our dogs (and other pets) do for us!

July 2-5, 2020 Lone Star State Classic Event, Dallas, Texas

First of all, our hope is that each of you are safe and healthy during this difficult time of dealing with a pandemic for not only our country but also world-wide as well.

After a long, and exhaustive investigation as to the feasibility of holding our event, we have made an informed decision considering the impact to all involved, including exhibitors (breeders and owners, professional handlers), judges, vendors, clubs (all breed, specialty, and AKC), ring stewards, photographers, superintendent, service providers, etc.

Due to state, county, and city regulations, and restrictions pertaining to the continuing effects of COVID-19 that will significantly limit the event, as well as the economic and operational feasibility of holding our July 2-5, 2020 event, the Lone Star State Classic Dog Shows have made an informed decision to cancel. We are so very disappointed and saddened about having to make this decision, but we do look forward to being able to hold many more events in the future.

Texas Kennel Club, Inc. Meet the Breed Saturday, July 6, 2019

The Texas Kennel Club, Inc. will present Meet the Breed on Saturday from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. Meet the Breed provides a valuable service to current exhibitors as well as the public so they may come see, pet, and learn about different purebred dog breeds. We believe a well educated public will make better selections when adding a dog to their family.

Tables and chairs will be provided. Participating clubs and exhibitors will need to bring their own tablecloths, handouts and decorations. No dogs may be sold at the show, but business cards and information may be provided.

If you or your breed club would like to participate in Meet the Breed, please contact Susan Lybrand, [email protected].
