Dog shows are back

YES, Sunshine Coast Kennel Club’s dog shows are on again this year at the Beerwah Sportsground, proudly sponsored by Blackhawk dog food.

They are holding four conformation shows which are the “beauty contests”, judging the best dogs in each breed to end up with a Best in Show. The first show is on Friday April 22 at 5.00pm. On Saturday April 23 we begin the next show at 8.30am, followed by an Open Show in the early afternoon. The final show is on Sunday April 24 at 8.30am.

It’s a great event to come and visit if you like dogs, with a diverse and interesting variety of breeds being exhibited, including a number of rarer breeds. The exhibitors are friendly and helpful with information about their breeds and willing to allow a pat or a cuddle. (puppies are always a favourite).

As well as these shows, a Flyball competition will be held on Sunday from 9am which is a great event for spectators. Sunshine Coast Council officers will be on hand on Saturday from 9am-1pm. To answer your questions and provide lots of relevant information on topics such as where you can exercise your dog, keeping your pets and wildlife safe, registration and microchipping, barking dog concerns and education programs. Plus, you can pick up some freebies for your dog, or activities for the kids.

There will also be stalls selling a variety of ‘doggy paraphernalia’, a coffee van and a canteen with great food and Sunshine Coast Kennel Club welcome the community to come along to this free event.
