New Competition – The Meriel Hathaway Memorial Open Stakes

Enter Online Now

New for The 2016 Show

The Society aim to support new judges and 49 of the breeds at the 2016 show will be the first CC appointment for the judge.
The Society were asked by Coventry Ladies Kennel Society/Dog World and have agreed to schedule Adult Handling Classes.  There will be 4 classes each day from 17-30 years; 30 – 45 years; 45 – 60 years and 60+ years.  The first three in each class will qualify for a final to be held at the city of Birmingham Championship Show in September 2016.

At the 2016 Show the Committee have made the decision to allow puppies from 4 months of age to be entered not for competition.

New Competitions

  • The Meriel Hathaway Memorial Open Stakes
  • Adult Handling classes

At the 2016 Show the “Meriel Hathaway Memorial Open Stakes” will be scheduled. Meriel was the President and a valued Committee member for many years and sadly died shortly before the 2015 Show.   The Society are offering generous prize money for these stakes and special rosettes will also be provided.  The Society feel that it is very fitting that these stakes will be judged by Andrew Brace who was a very close friend of Meriel.
