Labradors, French bulldogs, German shepherds, golden retrievers and more! Close to 200 award-winning pedigree canines will gather from 5pm this Saturday to compete for Dogs NSW Show Dog, Puppy and Neuter of the Year.
Hosted by the Dogs NSW Complex Fundraising Committee in partnership with major sponsor Royal Canin, the premier event to be held at the Bill Spilstead Complex for Canine Affairs in Orchard Hills, NSW, showcases top show dogs and puppies in their breed for 2016.
“The dogs on show are the crème de la crème of the dog world,” said Lyn Brown, president of Dogs NSW, the controlling body of purebred dog breeding and exhibiting in NSW, and a member body of the Australian National Kennel Council.
“These top dogs will compete for the ultimate award which celebrates the best overall appearance, construction, unique breed features, health and temperament.”
For the Dog of the Year, an entrant must have won a Best in Show at an All Breeds Championship Show in order to qualify to participate. For Puppy/ Neuter of the Year, the entrant must have won a Puppy/ Neuter Class in Show at an All Breeds Championship Show.
Canine winners and runners-up will be determined by nine mystery judges to be revealed on the night. Dogs won’t be the only winners—there will also be a Best Dressed Lady & Gentleman Handler award with a cash prize.
