THE ENTRY FEE: Pedigree/Obedience/Handling £1.50 per class.
Novelty £1 per class.
Our dog shows are great events for you, your family and of course your wonderful dogs. Offering great prizes, but above all else FUN for the family.
ALL profits from our 23 shows are split evenly in December between DOGS TRUST, GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND and the CINNAMON TRUST who we are proud to support.
Our main sponsor for the events is NATURAL DOG FOOD COMPANY.
Our PRIMARY objective is to raise as much money as possible for our three charities. ALL profits from our shows will be distributed equally between the three at the end of each year.
We believe that our exhibitors have the right to expect a well run show, whether pedigree or novelty which is judged fairly, knowledgeably and without bias. We do NOT have raffles !! We believe a show, if run smoothly, should last from start to finish six hours and preferably five, irrespective of the size of entry thus both the exhibitors and dogs benefit from not having to wait for long periods of inactivity.
We believe, where possible, in giving small trades the opportunity to display and sell their produce.
We are currently inviting selected trades to have stands at our shows. In keeping with the holistic nature of our main sponsors dog food we hope to have up to 10 artisan producers at most of our shows. From the wonderful Jams, Preserves and home made Quiches offered by Faversham Jams to fresh bread, eggs etc.
We do NOT charge a pitch fee but ask for a small donation to our charities. We will shortly be having a page on our web site which will give full details of the companies attending.
If you have-or know anyone who has a trade that would fit our ethos-please call 07774 619019 to discuss-ask for Joy.
