Eastern Show Classic Dog Shows Return to Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- More than 1,000 dogs will be under one roof in Wicomico County this week for the Eastern Show Classic Dog Shows.

It's the moment many dog handlers wait all year for.  A chance for their furry friends to be judged on their appearance, obedience, and their ability to perform tricks.

The five-day show featuring more than 100 breeds at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center in Salisbury will include judging the dogs' conformation, their structure as well as appearance. 

"Most dogs love the conformation showing because they enjoy showing themselves off," says Michael Doughtery, one of the event's organizers. 

Deborah Railey says to her, this competition means more than just showing off her dog. 

"It's like being around family, you might think that when you come to a dog show, you're by yourself, but you're really not," says Railey. 

The event got underway Wednesday, Nov. 7 and will continue through Sunday, Nov. 11. The Wicomico County Department of Tourism says the shows could bring in an estimated $1.2 million to the local economy. 

The Eastern Shore Classic Dog Shows is held by the Talbot County Kennel Club, Salisbury Maryland Kennel Club and Mispillion Kennel Club. The event is open to the public. Daily admission is $5 for adults, $1 for students. Children under 5 are admitted free. Tickets will be available at the door.
