There are 22 classes in total, culminating in judging for Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, Best Puppy in Show and Best Veteran in Show. We're also accepting Not For Show dogs so if you've got a dog you want to get used to the sights, sounds and smells of a show, you can enter them. As this is our 10th anniversary show, there will be a commemorative gift for every exhibitor as well as special rosettes for many of the class winners. Additionally, our sponsors Feelwells and Lintbells have kindly donated prizes for class winners - you can see a list of the classes below.

Refreshments will be available all day and you can pre-book a buffet lunch. There will also be a raffle and a lucky catalogue number prize draw. It’s going to be a great day - we look forward to seeing competitors, spectators and, of course, lots of podengos!

Who'll succeed Polo, or will she retain her title?
