The Berwyn Development Corporation established the Chicagoland Great American Mutt Show to fill the unmet demands of dog lovers searching for a venue to showcase the spirit and individuality of their dogs. The event features a wide variety of lively entertainment-based competitions for mutts and purebreds alike. What's more, a new "Interactive Zone" will provide participants and their pooches with the opportunity to test treats such as pupcakes, scrumptious dog-friendly cupcakes; exercise their creative sides in vying to be the next Pupcasso, the doggie version of Picasso with mess-free paw painting; and walk on the wild side by testing out doggie tattoos. Even if the family dog is not of the sporting kind, there will be plenty to taste, smell, and paw.
* All dogs, whether participating in a contest or just visiting, must provide proof of vaccination prior to the event or at the entrance on the day of the event. All dogs must be leashed at all times.
New Cutest Mutt Contest
New this year is the online "Cutest Mutt" Contest that will rely on e-votes from friends and family to make the cut for the day of the show. The pre-event winner will receive a gift card!
Prizes for All
Prizes for Everyone
No dog goes home empty handed! All contest entrants will receive a free goodie bag. Contest winners will receive first prize ribbons.

Come See Dogs Fly
In conjunction with the Mutt Show, the Chicagoland DockDogs regional competition will feature a mounted dock and an above-ground water pool with two days of wave times, including big air, speed retrieval, extreme vertical and divisional finals. New jumpers are welcome.
Animal Care League
2010 Featured Shelter
This year the Animal Care League was selected as the event's featured shelter as the event is also designed to promote animal rescue and pet adoption in the Chicagoland area. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to ACL.
Chad Lopez of The Urban Mutt and formerly of HGTV's Designed to Sell will return as the 2010 ringmaster. Check out Episode 5 of his web-series for a glimpse at the 2009 Mutt Show!
