The big news for the show is the NEW CHAMPIONS CLASSES – Following a change in KC rules the club is able to introduce a NEW CHAMPIONS CLASS, one for dogs and one for bitches. Confirmed Champions were invited to enter this class instead of Open.

Disabled parking – Follow same initial route but park nearer building, official badge holders only.

All exhibitors and visitors to follow directions from Parking Marshalls at all times.

JHA Classes – These classes must be entered in advance with show entries and dogs must be entered in the show. Handlers placed 1st to 3rd in these classes will qualify for the Junior Handling Association national semi finals.

Parade of Champions – At lunchtime, when the judges are away at lunch, there will be a parade to celebrate Champions of our breed. Dogs need not be entered in a show class but must at least be entered as Not For Competition. Please complete the information form prior to attending the parade and hand to the Secretary before 12.00 midday so that your dog’s details can be read out to the audience. There is a copy in the schedule (near the back) and they will be available on the Secretary’s table or can be downloaded here to assist with preparation.

Raffle – The raffle at this event will be in support of the club’s Rescue Fund. Donations to the raffle will be gratefully received and we thank you for your support.
