Welcome to the Rau Dog Shows online office where we are more than just pretzels. This site is designed to help you with past, present and future Rau shows and also includes some general information about the business itself.


Important Notes




We are currently developing a new website that we hope will go live in the future. You will no longer need a username and password. You will be able to enter a dog using an AKC number, dog's name or your email address. Unfortunately, to ensure a smooth transition to our new database, the old database will need to be eliminated.

How does this affect you?

When entering a dog on the new site for the first time, you will have to re-enter all the dog's information into the new website. If you do not have this information handy, we suggest you print that from your dog's profile from the current website.

Attention Exhibitors entering online:

If you are eligible for the Owner-Handled Series
(and the club is offering the Owner-Handled Series),
in addition to selecting a regular class, don't forget to select
"AKC Owner-Handled Series Eligible"
listed under additional classes

In the event of inclement weather
please call the AKC Event Hotline

About Us
Rau Dog Shows was established in 1979 and has consistantly grown and adapted through the years. We quickly grew to the point that it became necessary to have our own in house ribbon and printing departments.

Today our staff is ready to serve all your dog show needs. Whether it’s helping clubs prepare for their shows, supplying ribbons and rosettes, helping exhibitors enter or on the grounds the day of the show to ensure each show is the best experience possible.

Please call us if we can be of service to you in any way or stop by the superintendent’s desk the day of the show, say hello and have a pretzel.
