There was plenty for dog lovers to enjoy Sunday at a canine competition in the suburbs. It was the final round of the three-day Skokie Valley Kennel Club Dog Show at Rosemont's Stephen Convention Center.

The activities included plenty of pet primping as the dogs got ready to run through their routines before a panel of judges.

Dogs were judged on obedience, conformation, and general showmanship.

The shows are part of the American Kennel Club series.
