65 – Purina Farms Event Center: Canine Competition Destination with Kaite Flamm

Purina Farms Event Center

Purina Farms Event Center – Canine Competition Destination

Kaite Flamm – Senior Manager of Programming

Sixteen years in the making, the Purina Farms Event Center evolved from typical outdoor shows to the premiere canine competition destination.  Agility, Conformation, Dock Diving, Tracking, Barn Hunt… you name it and your club can do it at the Farm.  This multi-million dollar best in class center was built by dog people for dog people.  Over 30 Nationals including Poodle Club of American were hosted this year.

Built for the Dogs from the Ground Up

Distinguished in design, the Purina Events Center was built from the ground up with dog competitors in mind.


  • Rubber padded floors help ease the full day’s of standing and walking.
  • Light color selected to highlight dog coloring and visibility.

Electrical Heaven

Power reigns at Purina!  Special outlets and system to handler the “blower” demand… even for Poodle Club of America.


Close to natural lighting in the show arena and the same lighting for grooming hall… so what you see on the grooming table is what you see in the ring.

RV Parking and Rent-a-Trailer

Full hookups for RV’s that want to stay and enjoy the quiet nights on 346 acres of Purina Farms.  Don’t have a trailer? No problem.

Trailers are delivered to the RV parking ready for you and your dogs.  Your temporary home awaits.

Future Recommendations?

What’s in store for the future?  Possibilities range from more box truck parking to additional Event Centers on the West or East Coast.

Have a suggestion?  Let Kaite Flamm know about your great idea.

Thanks to Purina Farms for building us an Amazing Facility.
