25th and 26th Annual Independent Specialty Shows

November 13 - November 14

The PPWCC will hold its annual Specialty shows on Friday and Saturday, November 13 and 14, 2020. We will again be located at the Cabarrus Arena & Event Center, Concord, North Carolina.

Judges for Friday are Gail Steinmetz (Kered) – Sweepstakes (Puppy and Veteran), and Vicki Sandage DVM (Sandfox) – Regular Classes.

Judges for Saturday are Vicki Sandage DVM – 4-6 Month Beginner Puppy, and Kevin Dover (Pemcader) – Regular Classes.

There will be all-breed shows held by the Greater Monroe Kennel Club and Columbia Kennel Club at the same site that weekend, with the possibility for exhibitors to show in both our Specialty shows and the all-breed shows. Our specialty is expected to be held in the Gold Hall building.


  • We will adhere to the restrictions in place by the state of NC and recommendations of the AKC
  • MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED. If you are not willing to wear a mask, please do not plan to attend
  • If we determine that the Covid situation has deteriorated and we need to cancel, you will receive FULL REFUNDS for your entries
  • There will be an All-Breed show going on in the regular arena
  • As a result, we will be in Gold Hall, a separate building next to the arena. This will allow us to be separate from the All-Breed exhibitors.
  • Entries will not be restricted for the All-Breed shows OR our Specialty
  • Reserved Grooming will be available next to our arena in Gold Hall and areas will set up with 6 feet between each space.
  • NO HAIRDRYERS will be allowed in the building.
  • Several people drive their motorhomes and may be willing to let you dry your dog outside of their RV. I will make ours available for that and set up a table
  • Bathing will still be available in the main building, but please do not walk wet dogs through the arena.
  • We are working on banquet details where we can safely social distance.
  • If you have any questions, please email Gail Marcum, Show Chair, at gmarcum2012@gmail.com
