This year the Irish Water Spaniel Club will be running their Champ Show in conjunction with the Irish Breeds Show at Cloughran on the 13th September. We would like to see many Irish Water Spaniels take part so even if you have never entered a show ring before, this is your chance to show off your dog or bitch and to let everyone see that Irish Water Spaniels may come in all shapes and sizes but are all amazing!
Last year only three dogs were entered – this was very disappointing as we know there are many more who could have appeared in the ring.
Entries will still be received if entered on line. The closing date for on- line entries is midnight on the 31st August. follow this link http://www.dogshowentry.ie/OnlineEntries/Public/AvailableShows.aspx, go to “dogshowentries” and click on “Irish Breeds Show” and the entry form column is on the right of the page. The fee for entering one dog or bitch is 18 euros or £18.00. Judging will commence at 12.30 sharp.
However, showing is optional! Please come along on the day and find out what’s involved….and maybe next year we’ll see many of you take the plunge into showing? it’s a great day out and is also an opportunity to see all the other Irish breeds as well as Irish Water Spaniels.
