Southern Counties entry and exhibitor information..


SOUTHERN COUNTIES had a spectacular entry in 2008, bucking the general trend with an increase of over 200 dogs. In common with most shows this year, 2009 sees a drop in numbers but is still only forty dogs short of the 2007 total at 8,739 dogs and 10,600 entries.

The Association is delighted that it has had so much support from the trade and would ask that exhibitors support those present - a full list, along with much other useful information for exhibitors, is on the Association’s website at www.sountherncountiesdogshow.co.uk *

Once again the Association has increased the amount of tenting on order so there will be considerably more space for the wet weather rings should they be necessary.

Full details of rings and the timings and order of judging will be included in the passes being sent out over the next two weeks. The leaflet will also include precise directions to the showground, a map and the layout of the show and other useful information. Traffic on the Friday morning is likely to be especially heavy and exhibitors are asked to allow plenty of time for the last few miles of their journey to ensure they arrive on time. Southern Counties will have to run strictly to time on all three days so judging will not be delayed unless there is a serious emergency.

The Association is sorry to hear that Rainer Vuorinen has to go into hospital for an operation during the week of the show so there have been some inevitable changes to the published schedule (subject to KC approval). Borzois and Breeders groups (all three days) will now be judged by Hans Lehtinen, Keith Nathan will judge Pembroke Welsh Corgis, while Howard Ogden will judge King Charles Spaniels. Kooikerhondje, Bolognese and Maltese will be judged by one of Rainer’s fellow Finnish all-rounders, Johan Juslin.
