2014 ABdFC National Specialty

Purina Farms

Don’t miss out... Agility, Obedience/Rally and Conformation indoors at the new Purina Event Center! The Purina Event Center, an 84,000-square-foot state-of-the art indoor facility and includes all the extras required for an ordinary dog show event.

The ABdFC Membership was so impressed with Purina Farms in 2011 that at the annual meeting they voted to return to Purina in October 2014. For those of you who were not able to attend in 2011 the show committee is sure you will find that this is a show site designed and maintained for the dog community. Purina Farms combines an events center, a visitor’s center and two canine competition areas.

Located about one hour southwest from downtown St. Louis and the Lambert - St. Louis International Airport, the Purina Event Center in Gray Summit, Missouri, provides a central location for people traveling from all parts of the country. Within 10 minutes from the Purina Event Center are several hotels that accept dogs with little or no additional fees; some even offer dog-bathing rooms. Besides the RV parking available at the Purina Event Center, five campgrounds are located near the show site. A variety of restaurants can be found in the area, and there are major entertainment attractions throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area.
