The Lost Coast Kennel Club held their judging program over the weekend. The program, "The Friendly Shows," included an unbenched all-breed dog show, obedience trial and rally trial.

LCKC held the American Kennel Club licensed show at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds where vendors, dog lovers, and competitors filled the fairgrounds with a variety of food, products, and prepping stations.

The officers of LCKC are supported by a three-member board of Sara Borok, Deb St. Myers, and Emily Dalton.
