We are proud to present the Templewicks “My Dogs Got Talent” competition to be held in the main arena at our event. So if you have you trained your dog to do a unique trick, this is the competition for you. You do not need an impressive repertoire of lots of tricks, we are simply looking for something special you have taught your dog to do, such as rollover on command, take a bow, peek-a-boo, balance something on their nose, jump through a hoop, dance or count. The list is endless and it is up to you as long as you and your dog enjoy yourselves.
This is a fun competition and everyone who enters will receive a prize and a rosette for taking part. Free to enter this competition is open to all, individuals, dog training clubs and owners of all age.
In the main arena at 1.30pm . Enter your from 10am at the dog show arena
