Top Dogs At Progress City

Decatur – Top dogs from throughout the country are in Decatur this weekend for the Progress City Cluster.  The cluster is a major dog show put on by kennel clubs from Champaign, Mattoon and Decatur.

“You're going to see champion dogs being shown at their best,” said dog show spokesman Merle Taylor.  “You're going to see probably some breeds of dogs you've never seen before.  We have some with lots of hair and some with absolutely no hair.”

Many of the dogs have appeared at the top shows in the country including Westminster.

The show is at Progress City next to the Richland Community College Campus.  Activities begin Saturday at 9am and Sunday at 8:30pm.  Ring events usually take place around 1:30pm.  Admission is $5.
