Curly Coated Retriever Championship Show

Venue Oswestry Showground, Shropshire.

Schedules can be found at


Game Fairs and Country Shows.

Breed Representation

We have the opportunity to represent the breeds at a number of game fairs / country shows. For those of you that have seen discover dogs then it is a similar format: a pen for the dogs and an area for to display information. There is also usually at least one parade a day in a ring. As with Discover Dogs it is the opportunity for us to share our breed with the general public. It is not necessary for you to work your dogs as most visitors are more interested in dogs as pets.
Entry and car park passes are provide and if you wish to camp or caravan then a [itch will be provided.
If you have been a member of the club for at least two years and want more info then please e-mail Nigel Spraggins
