The Mid-Ohio Cluster Dog Show was held November 12 – 15, 2015 at the Bricker Building in Columbus. I stopped over by the show on Saturday before a scheduled assignment, and was happy to have free time Sunday to go back over and get a more in-depth look.
The show was sponsored by four kennel clubs, including approximately 2,000 dogs per day, representing more than 150 breeds from all over the United States and Canada.
I got a good look at the St. Bernards and Goldens on the last day of the show.
Here are my favorite frames:
