Dog show Saturday at Argus Ranch near Enumclaw

Young people from throughout King County will be showing their family dogs, mixed breed and purebred, Saturday at Argus Ranch for Dogs.

Exhibitors from clubs all over the county, including Enumclaw’s Sirius 4-H Club, have trained and cleaned their pet dogs.  Many hope to qualify during this county-level event to show at the Washington State Fair, formerly known as the Puyallup Fair, in September.

The show begins at 9 a.m. with breakfast and lunch cuisine on sale from the Teen Leaders of Tomorrow 4-H Club.

Two canine events will be staged during this show: obedience, where members are judged on their dog training skills, and showmanship, where members are judged on their ability to present their dog and their knowledge of canine health.

Argus Ranch is at 35612 212th Way S.E., near Flaming Geyser State Park. Driving directions can be found at
