The Reliant Park World Series of Dog Shows is celebrating its 36th year at Reliant Center. Dog lovers and their families can enjoy an array of events and exhibitions all located in the same venue. Beginning Wednesday, visitors can catch the Houston Working Dog and All-Terrier shows. Thursday offers an all-specialty group of shows, as well as the Working Dog and All-Terrier show, with only Conformation (Breed Judging) competitions that end with "Best of Breed" awards.

Beside breed judging, spectators watch owners/handlers prepare their show dogs in the crating and grooming area, agility dogs race though obstacles, Frisbees dogs soar through the air, flyball teams hurdle to beat the clock, impressive dancing dogs and more throughout the five-day event.
