The Kennels' Dog Show makes a much welcomed return to The Kennels and Duchess' Padock on Monday 30 May.
This is the complete day out for you and your four-legged friend with a number of talks, demonstrations and classes along with your chance to pick up wonderful homemade dog accessories and even treat your dog to some doggy ice-cream.
Pre-registration is compulsory through The Kennels' Team.
Entry is £5 per person, children and dogs are complimentary.
We do please ask that throughout the event dogs are kept on leads and that you clean up after your dog.
Join us from 11am on The Putting Green and browse a number of stalls including beautiful handmade dog accessories from Scrufts, a little treat for your four-legged friend from doggy ice-cream along with your chance to chat with a local dog walker, Canine Partners, our charity of the year, Woodruff Gun Dog trainer, Julie, and a professional vet who will be doing short 10 to 15 minute talks on everything from natural feeding to homepathy along with answering any questions you may have.
On The Duchess Paddock there will also be a barbecue serving delicious Goodwood hot dogs with an array of fillings to tempt you.
From 1pm Julie from Woodruff Gundogs will be performing a number of demonstrations including one with 16 week old puppies, gundogs who are mid way through their training and finally with fully trained dogs.
Julie owns a small kennel of working Labradors and cocker spaniels, having spent many years in the competitive field of gundog work she now runs a busy licensed gundog residential training establishment along with providing training days and working her dogs full time on many local shoots. She will also be on hand throughout the day for advice and training tips you may need with your own dogs.
