Published June 27, 2013

Lake Shelbyville – Has Lake Shelbyville gone to the dogs? It might seem that way to anyone who attends the Dog Days of Summer Dog Show on Saturday, July 6, 2013. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites area residents and their canine pets to join them for a dog-gone good time at this year's 19th annual Lake Shelbyville Dog Show.


The show will be held at Coon Creek Recreation Area Amphitheater, in rural Shelbyville. Registration will begin at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30 p.m.


Dogs may be entered in the following categories: Best Trick, Best Dressed, Smallest Dog, Biggest Dog, and Most Precious Puppy. Prizes and plaques will be awarded to the winners of each category. Multiple dogs per owner are allowed, but only one dog per owner is permitted in each category. Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.


Please remember all dogs must be kept on a leash no longer than six feet in length while at the show and within any recreation area at Lake Shelbyville. The leash regulation is mean to protect for the both the dogs and the people who enjoy Lake Shelbyville. Compliance with this rule allows everyone to have a fun and safe time.
