Pan-American Canine Konvention (PACK) Weekend 2017

The Black Eagle Kennel Klub, in association with its sponsors, is proud to announce the return of our weekend-long fun event designed for the international puppy & handler community.
Following last year’s hugely successful event, PACK Weekend again invites pups & handlers from around the world (regardless of experience, gender, or sexual preference) to come to Toronto, Canada for a weekend of fun social events at various venues within Toronto’s Church Street Village.
Your PACK Weekend VIP Package gets you into all the events (including two pup moshes), garment checks, brunch on Saturday, special Sunday discounts at Northbound Leather & The Men’s Room, a $5.00 O’Grady’s discount coupon, a squirt gun for the Wet Dog Party, the chance to enter or vote in the “Best In Show” contest, and a special souvenir dog tag.

Our “Best In Show” contest is a purely “for fun” contest where contestants will be allowed to strut their stuff and possibly win some great prizes. This is NOT a “Title” contest. We’re not looking for a titleholder or community representative. We’re looking for the most adorable, talented, or fun puppy at our event.
Each contestant will get 5 minutes on stage to do anything (legal) they want. No mandatory speeches, interviews, gear, or pop questions. Just do your thing and have fun. There will be a panel of judges who will each give you a score out of 25. Once every contestant has had their 5 minutes on stage, they will have 15 minutes to collect as many ballots from Weekend Package holders as they can. Barking, growling, humping, pawing, or whining…whatever you need to do to get those ballots.
At the end of the 15 minutes, the number of ballots collected by each contestant will be counted towards their final score. The puppy with the highest score will be declared the winner, and will receive some cool prizes.
“Best In Show” Winner gets a Blue Leather Ribbon, a leather puppy mask & $100 gift certificate from Northbound Leather, a $100 gift certificate from The Men’s Room, a $50 gift certificate from O’Grady’s, a $15 gift certificate from Baskin Robbins on Church Street, and a leather harness & t-shirt from the Black Eagle Toronto (total value $700)
1st Runner-Up gets a Red Leather Ribbon & $50 gift certificate from Northbound Leather, a $50 gift certificate from The Men’s Room, a $10 gift certificate from Baskin Robbins on Church Street, and leather gauntlets & t-shirt from the Black Eagle Toronto (total value $250)
2nd Runner-Up gets a White Leather Ribbon & $50 gift certificate from Northbound Leather, a $50 gift certificate from The Men’s Room, a $5 gift certificate from Baskin Robbins on Church Street, and a leather cock harness & t-shirt from the Black Eagle Toronto (total value $220)
Every contestant will receive a Black Eagle T-shirt for entering, and additional prizes are possible.
Please note that the number of contestants will be limited to a maximum of 8 and only Weekend Package purchasers will be eligible to enter or vote. In the event we have more applicants than contestant spaces, contestants will be selected by a random drawing.
