On the 5 and 6 January 2007 the Boston and District Canine Society will be holding its first General Championship show at the Newark and Notts Showground in Nottinghamshire. Many top dogs from the area will be competing against other leading canines from the length and breadth of the country and beyond!
The Boston and District Canine Society Show is the first new General Championship Show to be added to the Kennel Club calendar for over thirty years, marking a significant achievement for the society. The show has attracted 2327 dogs all competing for the coveted Best in Show award and some of the successful winners will also have the chance of qualifying for Crufts 2007, the last show of the season offering the opportunity to qualify!
Said Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary: "The decision to give Boston and District Canine Society Championship Show status, was a result of their continued hard work over many years. The Society’s many and varied activities, including weekly ringcraft evenings and match meetings, educational seminars and members’ social evenings plus fund raising activities ensure that it deserves its promotion to Championship level".
Pat Dufty, Secretary of the Boston & District Canine Society spoke of the Society’s new opportunity, saying: "We are absolutely delighted with the Kennel Club’s decision. We didn’t even begin to imagine that this would happen when we took over the Society over twenty years ago, and are so grateful to everyone who has made the show the success it is and raised it to such a level that we have gained Championship show status."
