‘Dogs lead the way’ at Darlington


Darlington Dog Show is making ready for its 39th Annual Championship Show in the grounds of the delightful Newby Hall in North Yorkshire on the 14th, 15th and 16th September 2007.

This year the show has attracted over 8,600 dogs and generated entries in excess of 10,000.
The venue is situated approximately three miles from the A1 (M) and is well signposted.

From the South A1 (M) take Junction 48 to Boroughbridge on the A168 and follow the Brown signs to Newby Hall.

From the North A1 (M) take junction 49 to the A168 (Thirsk) and then follow the Brown signs to Newby Hall.

EXHIBITORS PLEASE NOTE: There are currently road works in several places on the A1 (M). Make sure you give plenty of time for your journey, particularly on Friday, so that you avoid missing early classes.

Arriving at the venue there will be three lanes. Exhibitors will have the relevant coloured passes and will be able to make their way to Gates 2 and 3.

Please display your pass on entry to the Showground.

There is a continued caravan facility this year and to access this you will need to contact Newby Hall Estate on 01423-322583.

The Mid Show Dinner will take place on Saturday 15th September 2007 and for anyone wishing to attend, there are still a few tickets left at £30 each. To apply send cheque, made payable to Darlington Dog Show Society, to Mrs Freda N Marshall, Gainspa, 1 Butler Road, Newton Aycliffe, Co. Durham, DL5 5LU.

Judging will commence at 9.30am promptly and order of judging will be circulated to all exhibitors with their exhibitor’s passes. The start of judging will not be delayed except in very exceptional circumstances.

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors the society has a huge amount of prize money as well as product vouchers for various stakes’ classes.

This year there is a dedicated ring for YKC activities and The Kennel Club Roadshow will be in attendance for the distribution of material and also the opportunity to seek advice in general about the dog showing world. There is the chance to experience the Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme.

There is a MOBILE TELEPHONE number for any enquiries prior to the show days and during the show should you require it: 07933-046233.

Darlington Dog Show Society would like to thank all exhibitors who have supported the show, those who have sponsored events, trade stands for their support and Newby Hall for allowing the venue to be used.

Three days of warm sunny weather has been requested so we hope you have an enjoyable weekend!
