The not-for-profit Ladies Kennel Association of America and Long Island Kennel Club have served and supported the dog community in the tristate area for more than 100 years.  Once again, Long Island dogs and their owners will get the chance to strut their stuff at the annual Gold Coast Cluster All-Breed dog show and Obedience and AKC Rally trials, Friday, May 17 through Sunday, May 19 at the Planting Fields Arboretum, Planting Fields Road, Oyster Bay, NY 11771, beginning at 9 a.m. each day.

In addition to watching hundreds of dogs entered to compete in a variety of dog sports, visitors and their purebred or all-American dogs can get in on the action at AKC’s My Dog Can Do That, where participants try out agility, a fun and fast-paced obstacle course.  They can also test their water skills at Dock Diving in the 25,000-gallon tank as part of this three-day celebration.
