We always enjoy Purina. My granddaughter loves the whole experience but especially the dog show. She was disappointed Purina wasn't open at Christmastime and she'd have to wait until summer vacation when she comes to grandma's house again.

The cleanest, friendliest and best dog show venue ever. I just wish it had a little more room as it does get crowded at times and hard to get dogs past the people standing around the rings.

Afghan hound club of America national speciality was held here 2017. Conformation was outside and hot for dogs and humans. I think inside would have been better. Obedience, Rally and agility all inside. Great facility. Coursing field also great.
