Dogs NSW - Dogs on Show, June 11

Dogs NSW will this year again throw open their gates to the general public on Saturday, June 11 and are inviting you to attend their annual Dogs on Show event.

Dogs on Show highlights the advantages of owning a purebred dog, along with the many activities in which you can become involved in with your canine companion.

Activities and dog demonstrations showcased on the day will include:

  • Championship Dog Show
  • Pageant of Breeds
  • Dogs NSW Performance Team
  • Jack Russell Terrier racing
  • Herding Trials
  • Obedience, Agility, Earthdog, Dances with Dogs
  • Junior Handling, Retrieving
  • K9 NoseTime® and K9 Scent Scramble.

As part of the NSW Government's "Responsible Pet Education" programme, there will be special segments on "Children's Safety with dogs" which will highlight the importance to both children and parents of correct ways to approach dogs and of course supervision with young children.

There will be numerous affiliated breed clubs in attendance, so if you are interested in speaking to someone about a particular breed of dog, there will be expert advice on hand. This is particularly beneficial when deciding what breed of dog best suits your lifestyle and very helpful for young and growing families.

Dogs NSW will also have an information stand on site with information sheets on all the ANKC’s recognised dog breeds, as well as having show bags and merchandise for sale.

To add to the festivities, there will be many stallholders offering dog-related products and services, so there will be lots to see and do on the day. 

This will be a fabulous day out for dog lovers, for someone unsure on what type of dog would best suit them, or simply a fun day out for the entire family.

Where: The Bill Spilstead Complex for Canine Affairs, 44 Luddenham Road, Orchard Hills. Take the Mamre Road turn off on the M4.
