PR/Social Tips
Can the general public easily find the time their favorite breed will be in the ring at your club’s show?

If not, this might be a great opportunity to use Facebook. Create a dedicated Facebook page for your show or an event tab on your club’s existing Facebook page to promote your club’s shows and trials.

On this page or tab, post a spectator-friendly time table for the rings as well as the times of other public-friendly activities, including breed parades, activities like Agility and AKC’s My Dog Can Do That, or Meet the Breeds. You can direct both spectators and local media to this page for event information that’s easy to digest.
