The Columbus Kennel Club is holding its annual Rally Match and it’s always a fun event.

The first time I went to one was at Lakebottom Park. I went for several years. Then for a couple of years, the CKC went to a large space in Phenix City.

The past few years, the organization has been on the grounds of North Highland Assembly of God, 7300 Whittlesey Blvd.

You don’t have to have a purebred dog to enter some of the events. You mixed-breed dog is perfectly acceptable.

Registration is 8-9:30 a.m. Saturday.

Junior showmanship starts at 9:30 a.m.

Conformation will begin no earlier than 10 a.m.

Obedience for pre-novice or novice, open to mixed-breed and purebred dogs, will be no earlier than 10 a.m.

Rally, novice only, open to mixed-breed and purebred dogs, will begin no earlier than 10 a.m.

Canine Good Citizenship testing begins at 10 a.m.

Petco Ultimate Pet Pal for mixed breed dogs only, will begin after lunch. Local radio disc jockey Bear O’Brian is the judge.

Match fee is $5 for each event and $5 for the Canine Good Citizenship test.

PAWS Columbus will hold a microchip clinic during the match hours.

It’s $25, which includes microchip registration and the chip.

The CKC asks that you clean up after your dogs and respect the church’s off-limits areas.
