The Santa Barbara Kennel Club hosts its 106th and 107th SBKC Dog Shows.

The lovely Santa Barbara Kennel Club Dog Show started in 1919, and is one of the oldest and most prestigious dog shows in the country.

It takes place on Saturday, Aug. 23, and Sunday, Aug. 24, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Earl Warren Showgrounds, Highway 101 and Las Positas Road in Santa Barbara.

A portion of the proceeds from the admission will go to support the Santa Barbara County K-9 dogs, and Take the Lead, which services people in the support of purebred dogs who suffer life-threatening or terminal illness.

In conjunction with the SBKC Dog Show on Saturday and Sunday, the Simi Valley Kennel Club has its show on Friday, Aug. 22, at the same location, making this an exciting three-day weekend.

Also happening this year: the fifth annual Breeder’s Showcase, the Bullygangza and the Sighthound Spectacular. These events offer a great opportunity for families to ask questions of the experts and find out which breed is right for them.

Over 175 breeds will be represented over the four days. In addition, a Dog Show Tour at 10 a.m. both days will show attendants the ins-and-outs of the dog show.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
