For the most part, the classes are self explanatory, but for those that aren’t, here is a bit more detail.
Does your dog never stop wagging its tail? Does it (the tail) go round and round in circles? Then this is the class for you!
Judged (appropriately) by the Dogs Trust people, this class is looking for the best-looking, the best-behaved, the best-adjusted, the best-groomed rescue dog.
Egg & Spoon Relay Challenge
2 adults + 2 children + 1 dog = 1 team. Click here for more info and the form to pre-register.
Best Young Handler
For this the handler needs to be aged seven or older and has to show their expertise at walking their dog, their general handling and the ability to get the dog to sit.
This is wide open to interpretation! Can you, accompanied by the offender, tell the judges about the worst thing your dog has ever done?
For adults and/or children PLUS dog/s. Following this year’s theme (The Dog Detective) we expect the usual high standard of imagination and artistry.
Next Top Model
New this year, and sponsored (and judged) by PetLondon (the UK’s leading animal talent agency), this class encompasses dogs of all sizes and ages. It’s important to remember that ‘doggy’ stars are an equal mix between family favourites (spaniels, retrievers, cockapoos, bulldogs) as well as the more exotic breeds.
My Dog’s Got Talent
Can your dog jump through a hoop, turn a double-somersault, balance a biscuit on its nose? This class gives license to all those dogs with a budding talent to perform the unusual.
Best in Show
Is for the winners of each of the 16 show classes who then compete against each other for the titles of Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show.
