The Houston World Series of Dog Shows (July 15-19th) takes place in Houston’s state-of-the-art NRG Center. It is a cluster show, meaning it is actually several separate shows, held over consecutive days. Saturday and Sunday each culminate with a “Best of Show” winner, chosen from finalists among the seven variety groups with more than 150 different breeds represented.

Join us and photograph many exciting performance events including Agility, Obedience and Flyball, "My Dog Can Do That!," Creative Dog Grooming Contests, Meet the Breeds, Group and Best in Show, as well as Vendor Booths and displays from hundreds of companies and artisans offering pet food and accessories. Additionally, Canine Frisbee(SM), Canine Musical Freestyle and the Dr. Mari Jon Filla Student Art Exhibit are popular attractions. Many dog welfare and service organizations present information about their services, responsible dog ownership and proper pet care and nutrition in general.
