    OUR SHOW - Club Policy

    Our aim is to put on a friendly and efficient show for exhibitors to enjoy.

    It has always been the policy of this club to give judges breeds only where they are on a current judging list and not to give judges many breeds. However with the cost of fuel this cannot always happen. If your breed judge is not on your list please forgive us and support us and next year you may have a breed specialist.


    As it is a Premier Open Show some of the new breeds have only 2 classes and may not have a breed specialist, but every effort has been made to appoint someone on the breed judging list.


    All judges are contracted to send their critique to the Show Secretary for inclusion on our website. The Secretary is vigilant about chasing these up. The order of judging is in the schedule but we are not printing “Not before…” times. Summary of entries will be available on Fosse Data approximately one week before the show. Please do not phone the Secretary for these numbers.


    STEWARDS - are always needed. If you would like to help please contact the Chief Steward, Graham Dowdy on 01604 581760 or Contact Us with your details.

    Show Photographer wanted - this is an important part of the Show structure and although knowledge of Dog Shows would be helpful, it is not essential. Please contact the Secretary using the Contact Us form.
