Dog show back in Cowra | Keeper Cowra

The Cowra Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show returns to Cowra for the first time since 2010.

After taking place in Woodstsock for several years, the show returns to Cowra Showground on May 21 and 22.

“We are coming back down and so is our chief steward Kendal McMaster,” said Kennel Club secretary Neil Curwen.

It’s free admission for the public on both days with a show starting at 8.30am each morning.

There will be two shows on Saturday (May 21) and one show on Sunday (May 22) starting with a puppy show.

“We would like the public to come out and take a look with her coming back to town,” Mr Curwen said.

Mr Curwen encourages locals to talk to breeders to find out more about the dog breeds on display.

“You’ll see purebred dogs, that’s what we’re trying to promote,” he said.

“You will be able to talk to people of the different races. We hope to get a good distribution between the races.

“Some people, if they’re interested in a few breeds, can talk to different breeders. If they buy a puppy from the right person, it could be a way to get into dog shows and exhibitions,” he said. he declares.

“Not many people have left with the intention of buying a dog and showing it off, many fall by accident.

“The show is also a good way to see the dogs’ temperament,” he said.

Show judging will be carried out by members of the Cowra Kennel Club committee as well as a judge from Melbourne with Kendal McMaster returning as chief steward.

The shows will take place on seven rings.

The presenting sponsor of the event is Purina.

“I think we’ll have about 350 entries,” Mr Curwen said.
