OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) — Man’s best friend will be in the spotlight this weekend in Owensboro. The River Valley Cluster Dog Show’ is taking place at the Owensboro Convention Center through Sunday.

A new best-in-show winner will be announced daily as thousands of competitors from all-over take part.

“We have several best in show winners represented. We do have dogs here from all over the country and actually a few foreign countries. Also, there are handlers here that may have 20 to 30 dogs in their setups. So, we have a lot of serious competition in Owensboro,” said Cindi Ashley Bosley.
