The Potomac

The spring show is the largest single-breed specialty in the world and spans almost a week. With entries sometimes approaching 2,000, this event is known to dog fanciers worldwide.

It is a celebration of everything Labrador Retriever – including an amazing B Match competition, Judges Education, Junior Showmanship, Health Clinic, Top Twenty celebration, Stud Dog Auction, Obedience, Rally, CGC, Trick Dog and International Night.

Held in April in Frederick, MD, the show was awarded “Best Specialty Show” in 2019 by Dog News.
