Companion Dog Show

Our first community event to become regular, it is held on the First Sunday of August.

A popular event with families and people of all ages. Held under Kennel Club rules, it has four breed classes and eighteen novelty classes. Entry to the showground is free. A small charge is made for class entries.

The show may include an obedience demonstration and occasionally other demonstrations including ‘dancing with dogs’. FoCW arrange a game to add interest and there are appropriate stalls to further entertain. Refreshments are available from ‘Tasty Treats’, who cater for a summer event and Prizio’s splendid Italian ice-cream and cool drinks add that extra taste.

All levels of the Friends ‘Responsible Dog Ownership’ certification scheme are tested at the show. This is a challenge for conscientious owners whose skills can be measured against a progressive learning program. Click here to transfer to the Responsible Dog Ownership page.
