Morris & Essex Kennel Club Dog Exhibit

From AKC’s Arliss Paddock:

A revival of the lavish situations hosted from the nineteen twenties to 1950s by pet dog lover Mrs. Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge on the polo fields of her estate, the Morris & Essex clearly show is now held only each and every 5 many years and is a major occasion on the U.S. pet dog clearly show scene.

In the show’s heyday in the thirties and ’40s, spectator attendance sometimes achieved 50,000 and far more, and entries of three to 4 thousand canines competed for a broad array of silver trophies. The occasion was an important date for New York modern society as perfectly as for the pet dog clearly show environment. Mrs. Dodge and her workers of hundreds catered meticulously to each and every element, which includes pennants bearing the Morris & Essex symbol that flew at each and every ringside and gourmet lunches furnished totally free to all exhibitors.

The past of the primary Morris & Essex Kennel Club pet dog shows was held in 1957, but the club was revived in the late 1990s with the intention of recreating a prime-level occasion for the pet dog environment that would echo the elegance and focus to element of the show’s golden age. In the new period the clearly show has been held each and every 5 many years since 2000, with the country’s prime canines in competitiveness at just about every occasion.
