It’s Gold and Silver for National Working & Pastoral Breeds Society
The National Working & Pastoral Breeds Society, a Championship Dog Show, this year celebrated two significant anniversaries: The Golden anniversary of the founding of the Society and the Silver anniversary of their association with the Three Counties Showground.
The show, held in July of each year, showcases the dogs in two of the seven groups, Working and Pastoral, and attracts in excess of two and a half thousand entries. From some of giants of the dog world such as the Great Dane, Newfoundland, Bernese Mountain Dog and Mastiff breeds, to more compact but no less beautiful breeds like the Lancashire Heeler, Hungarian Puli and Border Collie. With over 70 breeds on display, it’s quite a spectacle.
It is also open to the public with free entry, and you can even take your dog in to the show as a ‘Spectator Dog’ for a small entry fee.
The show has a long association with Three Counties Showground as Show Manager, Mark Wakeland explains: ‘It really is the ideal venue for us, with flexible indoor and outdoor facilities; We’re delighted to have achieved our 50th Year, and also our 25th year at Three Counties Showground. We look forward to many more years here.’
