  • Spectator

    Sale ends: 01 June, 9:00 am

    If you would like to come down to the show, you can register now to help us know how many people will be attending. This is a free event for spectators so it is not a necessity to purchase this spectator ticket, but it would be appreciated and you will be in the loop for any updates.

  • 1. Most Pleasing Paw Shake

    Sale ends: 26 May, 5:00 pm

    The judges will decide which dog gives them the most pleasing feeling while accepting a paw shake from your doggo. You can first demonstrate how well your dog paw-shakes, and then let the judges decide. Bring their favourite treats if you think they will shake better for something tasty in return. Please read "How it works" and the Terms and Conditions for other important details.

  • 2. Waggiest Tail

    Sale ends: 26 May, 5:00 pm

    Have your dog in any position; standing, sitting or laying down. And do whatever it takes to get that tail wagging - offering treats or verbal praise. You'll be paying attention to their front end, while the judges will be paying attention to their back end. HINT: What are your dog's favourite words to hear?

    +$0.13 service fee
  • 3. Cutest Puppy

    Sale ends: 26 May, 5:00 pm

    Best Young Handler is for kids (12 years and under) who have a special relationship with their dog, and we would love to see what you can do together. You can walk them around our small arena, or ask your dog for some obedience training such as 'sit' or 'shake' or 'lay down' or 'stay' or 'come'. TIP: Try getting your dog to train for you in a public area such as a park or the beach rather than just at home so your dog is used to performing in places with distractions.

    +$0.13 service fee
  • 4. Doggie Dash

    Sale ends: 26 May, 5:00 pm

    This is a two dog race. You will position your dog on the start-line and hand the lead over to one of our Dog Show handlers. You then walk a short distance to the finish line, and on the count of 3, your handler drops the leash as you ask your dog to "come", and whoever's dog gets to them first and sits wins. Two dogs get to race each other at one time so there will be heats and a final.

  • 5. Talent Time

    Sale ends: 26 May, 5:00 pm

    This event involves asking your dog to perform a trick or unique talent. Some ideas could be dancing, singing (howling to music), jumping through a hula hoop (brought from your home), spin, rollover, play dead ("Bang Bang"), bark/speak on cue, fetch, bow, shake, lay down, stay, come. There is nothing too simple that won't be adored on the day. TIP: Bring tasty treats on the day. And once they have learned the trick at home, see if they can do it in a public place.

    +$0.13 service fee
  • 6. Best Costume

    Sale ends: 26 May, 5:00 pm

    This event does not need much explanation. From designer wear, to superheroes, to matching-owner outfits, to fancy jewellery, the possibilities are endless when it comes to finding the perfect showy outfit for your dog. If your dog is new to dress-ups, search online 'how to get my dog to enjoy dress-ups' and use oodles of treats and praise while they are wearing their outfits.
