The Sioux Empire Kennel Club is hosting a 'Meet the Breeds' event, Saturday, September 17th, from 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds.

Come learn more about dog breeds and their standards, responsible dog ownership, as well as the Sioux Empire Kennel Club.

They'll have many breeds for you to see and learn more about - from Poodles, Golden Retrievers and even Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

In addition to a variety of different dog breeds, Prairie Dogs K9 Search and Rescue, will also be present to answer your questions.

Live demonstrations will also be held during the open house. They do ask, however, that you leave your four-legged kids at home.

The cost of the event is free, and will be held inside the Old McDonald Farm Building, again, on the W.H. Lyon fairgrounds.

If you would like more information on the event, contact Sylvia Thorstenson with the Kennel Club (
