Championship Show Update


WELKS 2006 entry details

THE COMMITTEE of the WELKS is pleased that this year’s entry is much the same as that for 2005. The information for individual breeds’ times of judging will be included with passes which will be dispatched immediately after Easter.

It should be noted that there are some changes on the showground this year to minimise any risks to exhibitors whilst the horticultural show is being set up, as this follows shortly after the dog show.

The yellow gate will no longer gain access to the dog show and the yellow park is not being used; the exhibitors who are benched in Severn Hall will use the red gate and parking area and there will be a security fence separating the parking from the showground. Other parking areas remain as they have been for many years.

Anyone wishing to avail themselves of the A1 Petline tent for unentered dogs should park in the brown car park where this tent is situated.

This year’s show has attracted a total of 9703 dogs making 10740 entries. The individual numbers of dogs, and entries, per breed is as follows:
