Companion Dog Show

Paws in the Park Whats On Companion Dog ShowWhether you've got a pedigree Poodle or a cheeky Cockerpoo, there's a class for you at the Paws in the Park Companion dog show.


Our Paws In The Park KC Companion dog show is one of the biggest companion dogs shows in the UK. There are rosettes and prizes to be won, with the best dogs going forward for the ultimate accolade of Best in Show!


To take part in our Companion Dog Show, simply buy your Paws in the Park tickets online, and enter your dog on the day!











What is a Companion Dog Show?


Companion dog shows are fun, relaxed dog shows licenced by The Kennel Club, so you know they will be well organised and your class will be judged by friendly, experienced judges. They are usually run by a dog-training club, and are open to the public to watch. It's a great way to start our showing a pedigree dog, or just to have some fun with your family pet.


Part of the licence agreement with The Kennel Club is that half the proceeds from entries at a companion dog show is donated to charity, so when you enter, you'll be benefitting a dog charity too - how good is that! That's why there is a small entry fee for each class you enter your dog in, which is in addition to the price of your Paws in the Park show entry ticket.


The Companion Dog show will be at Spring, Summer and Autumn shows


Which classes can I enter my dog in?

Paws in the Park Whats On Companion Dog Show 2There is a wide range of classes you can enter, from formal pedigree classes to the fun classes for any breed, including "Best Biscuit Catcher"! All the classes are listed in the Companion dog show schedule, so you can check out which classes you want to enter in advance, and have a practice!



Novelty Classes

Everyone loves the Novelty Classes, where your dog competes to be the “Dog with the Waggiest Tail”, or the “Best Rescue”, or the "Dog or Bitch the Judge would most like to take home". It's terrific fun to enter these classes, and with prizes to 6th place in every class, your doggy pal could go home with a rosette!
Please note that Paws in the Park Summer Show will only have Novelty Classes!




Obedience Show (Spring Show Sat 19th May only and Autumn Show)


In addition to the Companion Dog Show there will also be an Obedience Show, open to all visitors.  There are a range of classes depending on your dogs ability with simple obedience, heelwork, recall and retrieve.

Entries and Rules

You can enter your dog(s) on the day from 10am, with classes starting at 11am. Our Companion dog show is licenced by the Kennel Club, and this does mean that certain rules do apply, such as not dog entered must be younger than six months old. The rules are all listed in the downloadable PDF schedule, or you can call the organisers for more details (their phone number is on the schedule). An entry fee is charged for each class you enter.


Our Companion Dog Show is held under cover (Spring and Autumn Shows), so whatever the weather, your prize pedigrees or magnificent mutts won't even get their paws wet. There is plenty of room for cages and crates, and for the keen dog showing fan, camping is available for the weekend, with Saturday evening entertainment included.


Each Companion Dog Show is held as part of the Paws in the Park show. You must buy an entry ticket to the relevant Paws in the Park show in order to enter our Companion Dog Show.
