DENVER - More than 2,000 dogs representing 150 breeds will be on display this weekend at the 18th annual Rocky Mountain Cluster Dog Show.

Events include a freestyle dog dancing demo, a flyball demonstration, agility trials and daily competitions to crown Best in Show.

Swagger - the 20-month-old sheepdog from Colorado Springs who is fresh off a second place finish in the Westminster Dog Show - is set to compete before traveling to Scottsdale, Ariz. for another competition.

Every day different trainers will offer attendees the opportunity to learn more about the breeds represented in the show.

The Rocky Mountain Cluster Dog Show lasts from Feb. 15 through 18 in the National Western Complex from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are available on-site. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children. No dogs are allowed at the site unless they are registered to compete.

A schedule, description of the events and a guide to dog show etiquette are available at www.denverdogshow.com.
