Our annual Open Show is much, much more than 'just' a dog show - it’s a great day out:
  • It’s open to all podengos and exhibitors, Association members or not.
  • If you're thinking about getting started with showing, come along for a friendly introduction and help. Advice and guidance are available for novice handlers.
  • Spectators are welcome (free entry) as are spectator dogs (£1 charge).
  • If you're interested in the breed, come along to see the dogs, meet some owners and find out more from our helpful Committee members.
  • We'll have a stall with all sorts of Podengo memorabilia.
  • You can pre-book a buffet lunch (pre-booking required so we get the numbers right).
You can download the Schedule from the link opposite and enter either online or by post - the main details are shown below.
