(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The weather didn't stop pups from showing off their skills at a dog show on Saturday, but it did almost force them to postpone it.

The St. Joseph Kennel Club held its annual Dog Show.

Nearly one-thousand dogs, from as far as Alaska, made their way to St. Joseph's Civic Arena.

The Kennel Club said hosting the show in St. Joseph, brings in a lot of money for the community.

"We have a lot of hotel rooms that are used in St. Joseph, a lot of money goes to restaurants. Usually, a dog show brings in a quart of a million dollars to the economy," said Dale Hunsburger.

There's seven different groups of showing for the dogs.

The Kennel Club has two dog shows a year.
