Chiswick House Dog Show
11.00am – 4.30pm, Sunday 23 September 2018
The gardens of Chiswick House. There are several arenas and lots of stalls set up around the cricket pitch at the Staveley Rd end of the gardens. Entrance on Staveley Rd.
This is the 14th Annual Chiswick House Dog Show, run by local volunteers for the enjoyment of the whole community and aims to raise money to maintain and improve Chiswick House Gardens. Entry is free. It’s a fun day out for all the family – you don’t have to own a dog to come along and enjoy it.
Classes range from Waggiest Tail to Prettiest Bitch, and from My Dog’s Got Talent to Next Top Model. Enter your pooch into one (or more) of the 18 classes: all dogs are welcome – big, small, pedigree, tea-pot, miniature, cross-breed, rescue, naughty – there’s a class for every dog.
The usual raft of surprise celebrity judges will be present: last year’s included Mel Giedroyc, Wayne Sleep, Richard Lintern and David Caves (from Silent Witness) and Neil Dudgeon (from Midsummer Murders).
There will be a wide variety of food stalls, as well as BBQ, beer and wine bars. This year the show has gone ‘international’ with a Swedish company selling ice-cream for dogs. Another 40 or so stalls provide an eclectic range of dog related stuff – pet portraiture, charities, local artists, dog treats, and every form of dog accessory imaginable!
