Dog owners from all over were excited to show off their pooch in front of the judges.

One dog owner said she is extremely proud of her pets when they win. It means a lot to see all of their hard work pay off.

“Oh my gosh, it’s like yay! Yeah, cause you get points and you get points towards your championship and then ya know you get bragging rights. Going yeah, I got a champion dog,” dog owner Rhapsody Rhodes said.

She also said this show is different than others she has done because it is outdoors.
