Dog Shows are an exciting way to meet other dog owners, to socialise your pet, and to test his or her abilities if you choose to enter a competitive event.
They also represent a great opportunity to get up-to-date information on caring and training for dogs. Competitive events can feature agility tests, obedience tests, and working tests. Judges and event organisers are carefully vetted by the Irish Kennel Club. If you would like more information on the types of competition involved in a show, click here
