The Committee looks forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors in August
Welsh Kennel holds a Championship dog show in August every year. It is visited annually by thousands of dogs, exhibitors and the general public. The show classifies all of the UK Kennel Club registered breeds, rare breeds and import register breeds, as well as holding other canine disciplines such as dogs competing in agility classes and championship level obedience. Everyone is welcome, even a spectator dog at a small administrative charge.
Welsh Kennel Club hosts the Welsh Top Dog and Welsh Top Puppy Two annual competitions held in November of each year. Residing in Wales 64 of the top winning dogs compete in a knockout style competition to declare an overall winner, under two secret judges only revealed on the night! The competitions are followed with an evening of raising money for charities, great food, good wine and dancing until the small hours with friends.
THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL A SUITABLE VENUE IS FOUND.
Delegated by The Kennel Club to issue the licences for companion dog shows being held throughout all of Wales, here you will find the latest information for events to visit every weekend. As canine activities continue to flourish around us, on our agility pages, you will find contacts and links to help you learn more. There is also a brief synopsis on Field Trials, and Obedience to hopefully cover the most popular of these activities.
