This year's Dog Show will now take place on October 21.
It will begin at 12 noon and take place in Stone's Orchard. You can enter the Orchard from The Green, via the footpath from Owens Way and another entrance from the Guild of Sport. Free parking for the event is available in Community Way Car Park which is located @ https://goo.gl/maps/4xcx1qftvJD2.
We have introduced a new class into this year's show called 'Best of the Rest'. This category gives every entrant who had previously entered on the day but did not come away with a rosette another chance to win. There will be no entry fee into 'Best of the Rest' if you have entered a previous class.
The full list of classes are as follows:
Class 1 Best Puppy – under 1 year
Class 2 Best Veteran – over 10 years
Class 3 Best Bitch
Class 4 Best Dog (male)
Class 5 Stop and Go – this is to test recall and ability to stop the dog. (Watch an example at https://twitter.com/CroxleyGreenPC/status/911924741388345344)
Class 6 Best Young Handler – any handler under 16 years
Class 7 Best Trick – any trick that your dog can do. (Watch last years' winner William show off his skills at https://twitter.com/CroxleyGreenPC/status/911953873627156487)
Class 8 Best Rescue – any rescue dog, does not have to come from a rescue organisation
Class 9 Chairman’s Choice - the favourite of our Chairman
Class 10 Best in Show – the winners of the preceding classes
Class 11 Best of the Rest – free entry if you have entered any of the previous classes and not won
Following on from feedback from last year there will be refreshments on site.
This year all proceeds from the class entrance fee and tombola will go to Dogs Trust. It only costs £1 to enter your dog into one of the classes and you are more than welcome to enter as many of the classes as you like.
As always, this event is for all the dogs of Croxley Green. Crufts this isn't!
Together we have raised over £2000 for charity from our previous Dog Shows.
If you don't have a dog please come along and enjoy the show anyway. If you have any questions about the event just get in touch.
P.S. Free dog bags will be available too.
