Lurcher and Terrier Events
Blackerwood Terriers are organising both the Lurcher and Terrier events at this year’s Show. There will be racing both mornings followed by showing in the afternoon with full schedules from pups to veterans. Terrier racing will be in the Apsley Arena. These shows are qualifiers for at least FOUR major championships so don’t miss out!
Family Dog Show
All dogs are welcome to join in the fun at our Family Dog Show and maybe take away a rosette or two, and who knows yours might be the dog the judges would most like to take home!
The Dog Show takes place both days at 2pm.
Dog Agility Course
For a real ‘paws-on’ experience you and your dog can try agility training with Up and Over Dog Trainers. You can have a lesson which will begin with an explanation of the basic commands and philosophy behind agility training and introduce you and your dog to the equipment. Once you have both mastered the jumps, see-saw, rigid tunnel, flat tunnel, weave and mini-dog walk, you and your canine friend will be able to attempt a solo round of the course!
“Have a Go” activities for every breed of dog
The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) will be running a variety of events where dog owners can put their pets or working dogs to the test.
For working dogs there are four Scurry disciplines as well as the prestigious Queen Anne Cup which will be run over the four scurry layouts and will be awarded to the dog with the fastest combined time over all four disciplines run back-to-back. The Cup will run over both days however dogs can only be entered once. The winner will receive the perpetual trophy, £30 in Chudleys dog food vouchers, and a rosette.
