Activities


The Companion Dog Show is the formal name by which charity dog shows licensed by the Kennel Club are known.

They are fun, informal events that all dogs can take part in and are usually held as part of a village fete, charity open day or as a fundraising event in their own right. Quite simply they are great days out for the whole family - including your dog! If you want to find out more please follow the link on this page Taking Part in a Companion Dog Show.

Note: Companion Dog Shows used to be known as Exemption Dog Shows (as they were exempt from normal competition rules) and some people still refer them as such.
