Do you want to take dog ownership up a fun notch? Dogs NSW is inviting dog lovers to be a part of all the fun sports and activities one can enjoy with their canine friend at its annual Open Day ‘Dogs on Show’ on Saturday, June 16 at Orchard Hills, NSW! Plus, admission is free!

Dogs NSW is a globally-recognised peak body that promotes breeding, showing, trialling, obedience and other canine-related activities, and the ownership of temperamentally and physically sound purebred dogs in NSW.

Dogs NSW also welcomes Dogs NSW Patron, His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret'd), Governor of New South Wales, and his wife Mrs Hurley to the event. “We are honoured to have The Governor opening our show and both he and Mrs Hurley will be actively participating in the various activities throughout the day, such as Judging some of the fun events,” said Lynette Brown, President of Dogs NSW.

“Dogs on Show is a fabulous day out for all dog enthusiasts - especially those unsure about what type of dog would best suit their lifestyle or growing family - or simply a fun, free day out for the entire family! The festivities provide something for everyone to enjoy.”

The event will feature a Championship Dog Show, colourful Pageant of Breeds and demonstrations including Obedience, Agility, Drafting, Dances with Dogs, Fun with Junior Handlers, Herding, Retrieving and Earthdog trials.

Dog lovers will also get to watch fast and furious Flyball and Lure Coursing in action!

“The annual Pageant of Breeds involves dog lovers dressing up in the traditional clothing of their breed’s country of heritage. It is a fun way of celebrating the unique heritage, diversity and predictability of purebred dogs,” said Mrs Brown. “All demonstrations are intended to highlight to the public the different activities you can enjoy with your canine companion. The ongoing support of the Governor and Mrs Hurley is very much appreciated and a wonderful endorsement of what we do best!”
