Due to popular demand there will be a Dog Show on BOTH Days this year. 



On Saturday our judge is Geraldine Chubb a local lady with many years experience in judging and participating in Dog Shows.  On Sunday, Selina Short from Short Paws Dog Agility School will be our judge.  Selena is a well known local Agility trainer, judge and keen competitor.

Also new in 2019, Debonair Dogz will be doing a demonstration of dog grooming as well as running a quick fix grooming clinic. Come and meet Debbie and her team and make sure that you are doing the best possible for your pooch.

Debonair Dogz  -


The Dog shows will be held on Saturday and Sunday and will start at 13:30.  We have classes planned to entice everything from the posh to the playful pooch! 

Registration for the dog show starts at 11:00 am each day at the Dog Show Arena. Cost per class is 2 pounds.   


The proceeds all go to the Axe Vale Show supported local good causes.  

Dogs enter the Showground FREE, but of course their humans need to buy tickets either at the gates on the day or at reduced prices before the Show either via our website or from the advertised outlets. 


We would like to thank Ferne Animal Sanctuary for donating the Best in Show Cups for each day.
