The Fort Steuben Kennel Association was refounded in 1968 and the first show was held in 1972 at the Ft. Steuben Arena (now the St. John's Arena). They have held a show every year since. They joined the Steel Valley Cluster in 1992. www.steelvalleycluster.org They currently hold 2 shows per year. One at the Canfield fairgrounds in Canfield Ohio in August. The other show is held at Friendship Park in Smithfield Ohio on Labor Day weekend. They welcome new members from the Ohio Valley and surrounding areas.
