The ACKCSC is excited to hold it’s 2023 National Specialty at the Founders Inn and Spa in Virginia Beach, VA. This top-drawer venue has plenty of room and an airport shuttle!   Please do not book through a 3rd party like Expedia or Orbitz. If you book through these sites we will not be able to help if any issues arise!

It’s not just a dog show! 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, 3 days of indoor Agility, 2 days of Obedience and 2 days of Rally competitions and also, 3 days of FastCAT. If you love Cavaliers, you’ll want to be part of the 2023 ACKCSC National Event.
