Special Attractions at a Dog Show
Try inviting local radio or television personalities (such as weathermen) to broadcast live from your show site. If your mayor or councilman owns a purebred dog, name him “Honorary Chairperson” of your event and invite him to present the Best of Breed trophy for his breed. Have a petition drive for signatures in support of/or against any legislation your club might be working on. If your dog club is a member of the state federation of dog clubs, invite federation representatives to the show and promote their appearance to the media.
