Enter Online Now

New for The 2018 Show

The Society aim to support new judges and 49 of the breeds at the 2017 show will be the first CC appointment for the judge.
The Society have once again been 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 2018.

The Committee have made the decision to allow puppies from 4 calendar months to enter not for competition at the 2018 Show.

New Competitions

  • The Meriel Hathaway Memorial Open Stakes
  • Adult Handling classes

Sadly our President Mrs Meriel Hathaway died shortly before the 2015 Show and the Society scheduled The Meriel Hathaway Memorial Open Stakes at the 2016 Show.  These Stakes will again be scheduled at the 2018 Show and will be judged by Mr Geoffrey Davies. The Society are offering generous prize money for these stakes and special rosettes will also be provided.
