The only way to nullify their [PETA] influence is to be a brighter light, a better influence. To spread the word about how we do love our horses (and dogs!) and we do care for them. ”

The Reno Pet Show has been **POSTPONED** due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. We will continue to plan for the show, whether it is held later this year or waits until next spring. We still need brochures & supplies. Once AKC is reachable again we will be contacting clubs to ask you to contact them to order brochures for our booth. STAY TUNED IN FOR UPDATES!

Welcome to Friends of the Northern Nevada Dog Fancy ("NNDF")! This is a collaborative effort of Northern Nevada dog clubs, groups, & just plain dog lovers & fanciers, spearheaded by Bonanza Kennel Club (BKC). NNDF was organized about 25 years ago when we participated in a boat, sport, & RV show, setting up a booth with AKC brochures, handouts about Northern Nevada dog groups, offered obedience & therapy dog demonstrations, & answered questions about dogs in general. AKC videos ran & beautiful dogs were always present.

NNDF has been inactive for quite some time. Recently we saw a flyer about the Reno Pet Show which is part of a large home & sports show & decided that it is time to revive our group & shed a positive light on our dogs! We contacted the event organizers & have secured a booth.

We are working with AKC to get brochures & videos. We are compiling a list of what we will need to set up our booth. Some of those items are:


  • Astro turf or low-pile carpet ~ 10' x 20'

  • Dry Erase Board

  • DVD Player & Screen

  • Peg Board & Hooks (to display pictures)

  • Donations to help with electricity in booth, printing a banner, & other expenses as they occur 

  • This list WILL grow as we progress with plans! 

If you or your group are interested in helping out, please contact us! We need you & your well behaved, social dog(s) to help man our booth for a 2-4 hour time slot over the three days of this event! It will take place March 27-29, 2020. 

We will continue to update this page as we make plans! If you can help out in any way, or if you have questions, you can contact us at or join our facebook group "Friends of the Northern Nevada Dog Fancy" where we can discuss how to progress & make the best positive impact we possibly can!
