Huish Champflower Dog Show Results – 2017

There were three arenas this year, one for the dog show, judged by Paul Yates. The second arena contained a very interesting dog agility course and the third, a Dog Scurry, arena erected and run by Brian Smith.

The youngsters attending the event were encouraged to try the agility course (with or without dog) and to be part of what proved to be a very successful “Fun Show.”

The whole area was a blaze of colour – bunting, flags, support gazebos, not to mention straw bales acting as large “sofas” on to which the spectators willingly parked themselves for the dog show, and to admire the wonderful vista, drinking cups of tea, as music from the Wivelele Band produced a very interesting medley of favourite hits from the sixties.

Trophy Winners

Show Champion Tomma Nares with “Gumber”
Best Local Dog Veronica Bowden with “Sammy”
Best Child Handler Josh Tilley with “Georgie”
Gun & Fun Dog Scurry Karen Smith with “Tommy”

The organisers of the event would like to thank everyone who attended the dog show and in particular to the judges, Paul Yates, Sandie and Trevor Mawer , Brian and Karen Smith and to Trevor Able for supplying the straw bales.  I would like to thank “Skinner’s Dog Foods” for their continuing supportive role and Yvonne Aldridge for sponsoring the rosettes.
