    Saturday we welcome the Toy, Terriers and Hounds to take centre stage!! If you visit us you will be surrounded by a wide variety of breeds from Airedale Terrier to Afghan Hound, the little and large of the showing world descend on the show.

    Dogs that have traditionally worked hard to earn their keep join us on Sunday with the Working and Pastoral Groups. The Pastoral Group showcases dogs which are used for herding everything from sheep to reindeer. The world of working dogs includes sled pulling dogs like the Siberian Husky and Canadian Eskimo Dog as well as a variety of dogs favoured by different militaries over the years; Boxer, Neapolitan Mastif, Portuguese Water Dog to name just a few!

    Not to mention that Sunday brings the judging for Best in Show in the main ring – a tense time for our competitors!
