CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Labor Day at the Event Center in Archer was one filled with competition. The Cheyenne Kennel Club held their 75th Annual Dog Show, a three day event spanning from September 4-September 6.

The events were held to American Kennel Club regulations and rules. Judge came from all over, including Florida, Arizona, Massachusetts, and other states across the US. Their are seven total classes; Puppy (six months-one year), Twelve to Eighteen Month, Novice (never won a first prize), Amateur-Owner-Handler, Bred by Exhibitor (on the records of the American kennel Club), American-Bred, and Open (no restriction). Typically, the Open and American-Bred classes contain the highest level of experience.

Male dogs are judged first, then female dogs. Judging is based on multiple categories, including physical structure (head, teeth, muscle tone, etc.), condition (weight, coat, animation, etc.), gait (front, side, rear), and temperament (penalized for shyness or viciousness).

At the end of the shows, winners from each event are judged together and a Best in Show prize is awarded. Best of breed is also chosen for sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy, non-sporting, and herding.
