How do I apply

               

Video your dog or puppy demonstrating your chosen behaviours required for the category you are entering.

                       

Send us your video, either via the Facebook page or emailing us onlinedogshow@mail.com

Once we review your video, we will either -

 

1.   Reply to suggest improvements. However, we are not looking for perfection, just happy dogs having fun learning to connect with their owners, so we won't be too strict.

 

2.   Reply to congratulate you, send a link for payment and get your rosette posted out to you.

What does it cost?

The entry fee varies depending on which category you enter, this is due to the rosettes being more ornate for the more difficult categories.

But don't worry ... you will not have to pay until your video has been successfully assessed and you confirm that you would like a rosette posted out to you.

What if I have more questions?

If you have any other questions or would like to have anything clarified, please contact me using the form below.
