A first for City of Birmingham Dog Show
Our Dogs is delighted to announce an exclusive series of talks to take place at the forthcoming City of Birmingham show. The veterinary consultants of Rutland House Referral Hospital, St Helens, Merseyside have put together a series of “Ask the experts” sessions specially written for Birmingham City Dog Show in association with Our Dogs, and these will take place at Stoneleigh.
Each consultant will present a fully illustrated talk of about 35- 40 minutes length followed by questions. The talks are largely geared to the breeds on the day, and the experts have even suggested people bring their lunch into the lecture theatres, so as not to miss out on these highly informative talks.
There will be no charge for exhibitors to attend the talks and more details will follow in next weeks issue. For now, here is the proposed programme which brings an added dimension to the day:
