Dog Show at the National Countrysports Fai
|Dogs Shows at the Fair
National Countrysports Fair is the largest outdoor gathering of
dogs and their owners in Northern Ireland. In addition to more
than a dozen gundog competitions and over thirty classes for
terrier and lurcher breeds, there is something there for every
visitor with a dog be it a pet dog or a working breed.
Our dog shows each afternoon are designed to be fun and
entertain all the family.
Companion Dog Show
Organised by the Irish Wolfhound Club the
Companion Dog Show is exactly that, a show for companion dogs -
those canine friends that are with us every day. It's open
to everyone and will run from lunchtime on Saturday 25th May
until 5.00 p.m. There is a nominal entry fee for each class you
want to enter and prizes for the winners.
Unlike many other dog shows, you don't need to enter in
advance, you just turn up on the day and chose your classes.
Companion shows are usually split into two parts:
These are for pedigree dogs, but unlike normal shows,
the dog doesn't need to be registered with the Kennel
Any dog can enter these classes, pedigree whether KC
registered or not, rescue dogs and cross breeds.
Types of classes vary between Companion Dog Shows and often
include things such as best rescue, best miniature dog,
largest dog, best puppy and best senior dog. The
judges come from all levels of dog showing and enter
into the spirit of the day which is all about fun.
