Show information

Current and past

 Sadly due to the Covid 19 pandemic the December 2020 Championship was cancelled and moved to August 2021 to run alongside The Welsh Kennel Clubs General Championship Show. This too was sadly cancelled due to the Covid use of the venue at Builth Wells. Alternative venues and dates were sought for the 2020 Championship Show to enable it to still be held in 2021  but after extensive research and restrictions sadly this was not possible to organise. However both Judges have been asked to officiate at the 2023 Championship Show & have KC approval.

Sadly we also had to cancel the Open Shows in February 2021, and then again in 2022 also due to Covid restrictions and venues, but see below for a 2022 update.

Our 2021 Championship Show, our 50th Anniversary, was eventually held on Sunday 5th December 2021 at Pontardawe Leisure Centre. The change of venue was due to our usual venue not taking bookings, or confirming them, as many centres in Wales have been used as vaccination, testing and now booster venues. Although some restrictions were in place the new venue was found to be successful, the staff most helpful, super car parking and we feel that it presented an excellent result for our 50th Anniversary.

The dog Judge was Mrs Anne Prowse and the bitch Judge was Mrs Niamh Ballantyne, both awarding CC's for the first time, an exciting show celebrating our 50th Anniversary. Critiques from the Judges have been posted on the Results section & photographs of the main winners, & more, have been added to the gallery below.

The 2022 Open Show will be held in conjunction with The Welsh Kennel Club Championship Show on 21st August, Hound Day, at Builth Wells showground. The Breed Judge is Luke Sampson with the SAC & JHA classes being judged by Alex Paisey.  Judging will not be before 1pm and will start with the Special Award Classes and JHA classes. Online entries are available via Higham Press, link below, with a very limited number of paper schedules available. Email; secretarywcow@gmail.com
