First Company Governor’s Foot Guard Athletic Association

Dog Show and Obedience Trials

The First Company Governor’s Foot Guard, under the command of Major Commandant Christopher Cain, will sponsor the First Company Governor’s Foot Guard Athletic Association’s Annual Dog Show and Obedience Trials this weekend.  At these events, dogs compete to earn championship points in the breed conformation judging.


New this year, the Foot Guard Athletic Association is sponsoring two separate shows:  One each on Saturday and Sunday.  These are separate shows with separate entries, separate judging and separate winners.


Our shows are AKC sanctioned events.  Saturday’s show is All Breed and Junior Showmanship (AB/JSHW) and Sunday’s show is an All Breed, Obedience and Junior Showmanship (AB/O/JSHW) event.  Nearly 900 dogs are entered in each show.  Dogs from as far away as Texas, Minnesota and California as well as Canada have been registered to compete in the shows, including some that will have just competed at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.  Over 140 different breeds of dogs will be represented.  Also, more than 50 dogs have been entered in Obedience Trials on Sunday which showcases some impressively trained dogs performing a series of obedience exercises.
