Minnesota Dachshund Club Specialties

Minnesota Dachshund Club

MDC Specialty events are held in conjunction with the St. Croix Valley Kennel Club All Breed and Combined Specialties Shows. The 2019 shows will be August 22nd and 23rd at the Washington County Fairgrounds, 12300 40th ST N, Lake Elmo, MN.

The road work around the fairgrounds is essentially done. Note that the new roads provide three entrances to the fairgrounds. The south entrance is the one to use for the shows.

In recent years we have had excellent classes both days, including a number of 5-point majors in conformation.
