Great news for Luton Canine Association which has been given the go-ahead by the Kennel Club to expand.
The open show received a massive 2110 entries at their December show, which is a real boost at a time when open shows are going through a low.
The show has previously covered two days and will now be three days in December, Saturday 28th (Terriers, Utility & Toys), Sunday 29th (Hound and Gundogs), Monday 30th (Working and Pastoral).
Wood Green Animal Shelter will once again be the venue and the society are pulling out all the stops to make the show a success. Rings on days 2 and 3 will be double sized to accommodate some of the larger breeds and entry fees will remain the same at £4 per dog per class.
With sponsorship from a dog food company there are products for every best of breed, best NSC, best import register and the veterans. Other prizes inlcude £5 to every BOB winner and £15 to every best AVNSC in group and there is over £100 on offer in prize money for the stakes classes each day.
Judging times have been brought forward from 9am to 10am to allow exhibitors plenty of time to arrive and settle before they are due in the ring.
