American Eskimo Dog Association

The Finger Lakes American Eskimo Dog Association was formed in 1990 by a small group of people who love the American Eskimo Dog. They had been showing but there were no clubs in the central New York area so thought that they would fix that. They started off with just a handful of people and have grown a little in the past 21 years (WOW, 21 years!! Where has the time gone!) We started out doing conformation shows and obedience shows but now just do conformation because we don't have the members to do obedience any longer.

We now do 3 weekends of all-breed shows a year. Until 2009 we only had 2 weekends of shows a year, but now we have three weekends of shows so that the fire company can have another fund raiser. We hold 1 show Friday night, 2 shots on Saturday and normally 1 show on Sunday. In 2012, we tried doing 2 shows on Sunday also and it went very well. Our normal shows are in May and July and we have them at the Locke Volunteer Fire Station in Locke, NY. There are two buildings so have our shows in and if the weather is really nice, we can have them outside in a big open field. The Fire Station uses our shows as fund raisers and provides food for the shows (breakfast sandwiches in the mornings and burgers and dogs for lunch). And our shows would not be complete without the Muffin Lady - she brings her homemade wares to our shows and they are fantastic!! In addition to the breakfast and lunch that the fire station does, we have a chicken barbecue on Saturday night of our July show. One of our members has married a man who likes to cook and he does a fantastic chicken barbecue - chicken, ribs, salt potatoes, salads, and dessert. It is a chance for everyone to sit around and shoot the breeze, No need to run off to get supper when it is right there on the show site. We have a great show with great people and we encourage everyone to come.

I have created a new FaceBook page for the photos that are taken at our shows. Anyone can view them, even if you are not on FaceBook. Go to: FaceBook and search for "Finger Lake American Eskimo Dog Club - Show Pictures".


Here is a pdf file that can answer alot of your questions. It is full of great information on the how to's of showing in UKC shows. Tells you how to register your dogs and what to expect at shows. You will find it very helpful. It is quite a large file so will take a couple of minutes to open.

At the July 2007 show, we had a surprise when Barbara Deigan came to show her last eskie in obedience. Barb has been in eskies since 1971 and has been an icon of the breed for as long as I have been in the breed. She is also a wonderful lady with a great sense of humor (ask Pat O'Donnell about Moodus, CT). We had a few "old time" eskie people at the show and got them together for a picture. I am glad that Barbara came to the show and we were able to get a picture because Barbara died in November 2007 at the age of 69. We were shocked! She will really be missed!

At the July 2004 show, we started a new tradition - a rotating trophy for "The Best of the Best of Show". It is called the "Edgar Gray Memorial Rotating Trophy" and is named after one of the founding members of our club and the father of the president of our club. It is an all mahogany trophy made especially for us by the company that Renee O'Donnell use to work for and it is beautiful!! We will put a plaque on the base with the name of the winner each year and the owners can keep the trophy for a year and bring it back the following year. This year we had to add a bottom because the place for labels was full. Here is a picture of the trophy itself. Isn't it beautiful?
