New site for Beverly Hills & Long Beach Obedience & Rally Trials

lb bh siteThe Kennel Club of Beverly Hills & Long Beach Kennel Club will be holding their obedience & rally trials in a new location this weekend.  The new site is behind the shops, and is next to the Queen Mary and the Dome.  The new location is quieter and is away from the hustle & bustle of the rest of the show.  Parking is reasonably close and there will be signage directing you where to park.  There will be tenting.  The food vendors are quite a distance away, so you may wish to bring your own lunch and snacks.  Click here for satellite view.lb bh site 2
