SOUTH AFRICAN BRED INVITATIONAL BREED COMPETITION : DOG JUMPING
An exciting event created especially for South Africa's own "top dogs". Still one of the most exciting and entertaining events. Based on horse jumping, the dog has to negotiate a course of jumps and the dog with the least faults and within the set time allowed is declared the winner.
GROOMING BREED SHOWING
Grooming your pet is an extremely important aspect of responsible ownership. Come and watch the experts trimming, clipping, grooming and giving advice. Dog shows are a rewarding and social aspect of dog ownership. Many dog shows are organised around the country and The Kennel Union of S.A. will provide you with contact details for the various clubs whether it be for dog training, breed showing, dog breeders etc.  2013 featured for the first time the Wodac "Golden Collar" Award for the winning Champion.  Not to be out done, 2014 will introduce the "Silver Lead" Award for our Open dogs (no champions). The ever popular Youngstars (puppies & juniors) and the Grand Master events add to the excitement.
AGILITY CARTING

MG_0778sm

The dogs love it, their owners love it and you'll love it too, so don't miss this exciting competition. This sport is great fun but does require a fit dog and handler. The sport is open to all breeds of dogs and dogs of any size can participate in the various sized categories. It focuses on the handler's ability to control and direct their dog accurately over a series of obstacles as quickly as possible. Agility is a fairly new sport in South Africa being introduced only in May 1998.

A demonstration of carting is one of the most popular displays at the show and is definitely a must for all visitors.

FLY BALL PARADE OF DOGS & DOGS OF THE WORLD

Flyball is certainly a fast and furious game consisting of two teams of four dogs racing against the clock. The dogs have to negotiate four hurdles before they trigger a tennis ball that they have to catch and return to the finishing line going back over the hurdles. Breeds of all shapes and sizes take part.

A chance to see two informative parades of dogs within the seven Breed Groups. The one will provide an overall view of the breeds represented at the show and the other with owners dressed in traditional country of origin clothing. An interesting and informative commentary is given on each breed as it enters the arena.

CHILD & JUNIOR SHOW DOG HANDLING CANINE GOOD CITIZEN

Training and socialising your new pup is vital in creating a well-behaved and confident puppy. The display will demonstrate the early stages of puppy training and socialisation.
