In light of the Ohio Governor's order prohibiting all mass gatherings of over 100 people in the state of Ohio in an attempt to curb Coronavirus, the 2020 National Specialty has been cancelled. We hope to hold a National at the Roberts Center another year.

ACKCSC Store refunds will be forthcoming. We are working out the details of entry fees with AKC and the superintendents. We will keep you advised. Thank for your continued patience.


April 27, 2020 - May 1, 2020

 Get ready for some excitement!  The 2020 National Specialty will be hosted by the ACKCSC at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio!

See the box on the sidebar for premium lists.

Note: Friday, April 10th will be the deadline for purchasing Reserved Seating, Parade of Veterans and Parade of Rescues, as embroidery and ribbons need to be ordered.

The ACKCSC is excited to hold it's 2020 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 and also, 2 days of FAST CAT. If you love Cavaliers, you'll want to be part of the 2020 ACKCSC National Event.

 Save the dates and plan to join us for the event in 2020!

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 can be found under the venue tab. 

2020 will have both a National Specialty and an Independent Specialty hosted by the ACKCSC. Remember, we have no host club for the 2020 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!
