Hundreds of Poodles and Poodle owners from all over the
United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan will soon descend upon Salisbury
for the 82nd Annual Poodle Club of America National Specialty Dog Show April
20-25th at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center. The event is all
Poodles, all the time, all varieties including Toy, Miniature and Standard. The
five day show is free of charge for spectators and open to the public.
The Civic Center is magically transformed for the week. The interior of the
arena is laid with sod to provide the best footing possible for the Poodles and
their handlers. The exhibition rings are decorated with elaborate flower
arrangements. The Midway Room in the Civic Center becomes a dog-loving
shoppers’ paradise, and the rear parking lot becomes an RV campground complete
with electric hookups, barbeque grills, tents and lawn chairs.
There are other aspects to the week beyond the dog show competition. For
