Dog show in Canfield boosts local economy

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

The annual Steel Valley Cluster Dog Show got underway Thursday at the Canfield Fairgrounds.

Breeders from four different regional kennel clubs converge to find out who is the best of show.

Over 2,300 dogs are entered into this year's show.

Organizers said the thousands of people who come in boost the local economy.

"We hire judges from all over the country, so we're boosting hotels for our own purposes, then you have the exhibitors staying here as we do ourselves," said Gael Damron, cluster coordinator.

The show has 163 breeds of dogs represented which continues through Sunday.
