Canine Sections

Our best friends

We are looking forward to real “doggy” event at Stanhope Show 2022…and as always welcome our doggy visitors to the show.

Saturday sees the return of KC Dog Obedience...always terrific to watch….see how it should be done with perfect cooperation and work between handler and dog.

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

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

As you would expect, all dogs must kept on a lead unless competing.  Dog mess must be cleaned up from the showfield, car parks and adjoining areas and footpaths. We look forward to your cooperation with this.
