Unfortunately, there was a problem with some exhibitors at one of our hotels in 2010.  An AKC Bench Show Hearing was called and action was taken against those individuals.  Hotels are a very important part of any dog show and therefore we will take any action necessary to ensure that this type of situation does not occur again.
