Bring your dog to take part in the ever –popular Companion Dog Show in the Country Sports area on the Monday of the Show.  Entries are taken from 9.30am and judging commences at 11.30am.  All dog owners can enter and there are classes for pedigrees and crossbreeds.

Gundog demonstrations, clinics and competitions are organised by The South Eastern Gundog Society on both days of the Show. The events gather quite a crowd of spectators. Experienced handlers and trainers will be on hand to answer questions and give advice. More details of the timetable can be found under Competing/Dogs.

The Cavalcades of Footpacks and Fox Hounds, including the chance for children to run with the hounds, in the main ring is a wonderful sight.  At other times the Hounds have a special area within the Country Sports section – a chance for a closer encounter.

The Working Terrier Show and Terrier Racing take place on the Monday of the Show.  Entries can be made on the day.  They are both very popular spectator attractions each year.
