About the Photos

These dogs were participating in the annual Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show. For one weekend every year, dogs of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds take Seattle’s major sports’ stadium by storm. The SKC Dog Show showcases a vast array of very good dogs as well as myriad opportunities to learn about them.

Yes, there are agility trials and “meet the breed” events, but the best part is enjoying the company of thousands of dogs at once.
