    Steve Metz, of Danville, Calif., prepares 18-month-old Best of Breed champion Harley, a Bichon Frise, for the 94th annual Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, Saturday, Jan. 31, 2004. Over 2000 dogs and 135 breeds are featured in the show.

    Thousands of dogs, from Dalmatians to dachshunds, are expected to strut their stuff this weekend at the 2019 Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show.

    The event, happening Saturday and Sunday at the Cow Palace, showcases more than 175 breeds, with 1,500 entries per day, organizers said.

    Show dog trials will be held in the main arena each day, and a benched show will provide opportunities to meet the dogs and learn about breeds.

    In addition, dogs will be styled and walk the runway in an all-breed fashion show with judging based on originality, high style, humorous and breed heritage.

    Other events include a best puppy-in-show contest and fly-ball demonstrations.

    The Golden Gate Kennel Club Show ranks as one of the most prestigious in the nation. With a history dating back over 100 years, the event is one of the few remaining benched dog events in the country.
