Get ready for some excitement!  The 2022 National Specialty will be hosted by the ACKCSC at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio!

The ACKCSC is excited to hold it's 2022 National Specialty at the Roberts Centre.  This is a first-class venue with top of the line ring appointments, 50,000 sq. ft. of space which will allow us to host Agility, Rally & Obedience with its own special designated area, and newly renovated hotel.

It’s not just a dog show! It is a gathering of people interested in sustaining and improving the Cavalier, and in keeping educated and connected.

National Week includes educational seminars, health screenings, social events, Charitable Trust and Rescue Trust fundraisers, with 5 days of Conformation, 2 days of Junior Showmanship, 2 days of indoor agility, 2 days of Obedience and 2 days of Rally competitions, 3 days of FAST CAT, and Trick Dog. If you love Cavaliers, you'll want to be part of the 2022 ACKCSC National Event.  This year, special $500 prizes for Best Bred By Exhibitor Dog & Bitch in classes have been contributed by Erica & Rachel Venier of Orchard Hill Cavaliers in memory of Robert Schroll.

Save the dates and plan to join us for the event in 2022!

More information - and video - about the host hotel and secondary hotels can be found under the venue tab.

We are so excited to introduce you to Royal Canin Ring at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio!  This venue has it all.

More information - and video - about the Centre and the adjacent Holiday Inn Hotel and the two secondary hotels (with discount code rates) can be found under the venue tab. 

We estimate around 30% of attendees will be staying at the two beautiful secondary hotels, so even if you don't make it into the host hotel, know that you will be surrounded by friends!  Our goal is to make everyone - whether at the host hotel or one of the secondary hotels - feel as welcome and included as possible.  If you would like to serve as a hotel "welcome ambassador" at one of the secondary hotels, please let us know via the volunteer form on this website.

2022 will have both a National Specialty and an Independent Specialty hosted by the ACKCSC. Remember, we have no host club for the 2022 National, so we are counting on our members to participate!  Please let us know what you would like to help with by submitting the Volunteer Form under the Volunteers tab.

It's going to be a great event - so bring your dog and let's have some FUN!
