Win a pair of tickets to East of England 2005
Enjoy a perfect dog lover’s day out at this year’s East of England Championship Dog Show - one of the most popular and prominent fixtures in the dog showing calendar on Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st July 2005 at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.
Now in its 47th year, the Championship Dog Show attracts nearly 10,000 top-winning dogs and their owners, presenting the ideal showcase for many of the top breeders from across the country.
Visitors to the Show can see over 130 individual breeds during the three days featuring Hounds, Toys & Terriers on Tuesday 19th; Gundogs & Utilities on Wednesday 20th and Working & Pastoral on Thursday 21st. And with the pet passport system now firmly established, overseas entries remain a welcome edition to the Show, making it a truly international event.
For the second year running, the Show also features Young Kennel Club handling classes, split into 2 categories; children aged 6-11 years and 12-16 years, with the winner of each class qualifying for Crufts at the NEC Birmingham in March 2006. There is also a great opportunity to pamper your pet and enjoy some retail therapy with over 50 specialist trade stands selling everything to make your dog’s day including the very latest fashions in the dog world.
After all that, why not take a relaxing break and grab a bite to eat from a range of eateries, all supplied by ‘Food Direct from the Farm’, providing locally sourced produce, of the highest quality and best value.
