Canine Sections

Our best friends

We are saddened to announce that the Open Kennel Club dog show which has been held at Stanhope Show for many years will not this year be taking place. 

The reasons for this are out of our control and despite concerted efforts by the committee to try and secure the classes, unfortunately delays caused by the covid-19 restrictions stopped plans being implemented earlier in the year.

We look forward to reintroducing the Open KC Dog show in 2022.

 On Sunday the Lurcher, Terrrier and Whippet Shows take place. See more here.  

Watch the wonderful Dog Agility classes and for our beloved furry friends who may not be Kennel Club registered…enjoy the fun in our Companion Dog Show
