Love Dogs? You’re Going to Love This!
The AKC and Royal Canin bring to you Canine Extravaganza—the nation’s largest celebration of dogs! Formally known as Celebrate Dogs!, this fun-filled, dog-crazy event is back! Canine Extravaganza is a two-day, family friendly event that will include many fun and exciting events for all dog lovers.
The extravaganza will take place at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center on December 17th and 18th during the prestigious AKC National Championship Presented by Royal Canin. This championship dog show is one of the world’s premier dog events and features top canines competing for the esteemed Best in Show title and cash prizes.

Some of the fun activities featured at the 2016 Canine Extravaganza include:
The always exciting Diving Dog event is back. These fearless dogs will demonstrate their athleticism and love of the water while impressing us with their diving skills.
- Meet the Breeds returns with over 150 dog breeds represented in this fun, educational exhibit. Dog enthusiasts can learn about the different breeds and which breeds best suit their lifestyle.
- AKC’s exclusive pet insurance provider, PetPartners, Inc., will again provide the family Fun Zone where kids can let loose and enjoy various activities including a Bounce House and slide.
