Russ Krohn, of Blue Springs and the treasurer for the association, takes Mandy Sue Pepperridge, out of her crate on Saturday at the competition. He said that Mandy had placed number 6 in the nation in obedience training. “She has a drawer full of ribbons,” he added. Krohn and his wife Kim have raised Pit Bulls for 32 years and said that there’s many misconceptions about the breed. “They are wonderful dogs, we’ve had both rescue and full breed. They should never ever be people aggressive.”

Dorie, 9 months, exercises on a slatmill at the event while Karmella Nichols, 6 of Blue Springs, offers her a ball and owner Sam Roman, of Milton, Kans., encourages Dorie to run. The slatmill is generated by the dogs own feet and how fast it runs, not by mechanics. Milton owns the Pit Bull with his wife Summer Roman. Karmella traveled to the show with her aunt Nicole Blake, of Holden, the show secretary. Blake said they had approximately 150 entries for the show. Judges traveled from Oklahoma, Texas and Utah for the two day event held Saturday and Sunday.
