Battersea Park Dog Show

Battersea Park Dog Show returns on Sunday 18 June for a fun filled day of competitive canine classes and activities in support of Armed Forces Day.

Enter your dog into a variety of pedigree and novelty classes such as best sporting dog, best rescue dog, best trick, and best marching dog, supported by the Special Armed Forces.

Wandsworth Council’s Battersea Park Dog Show has teamed up with the Armed Forces to celebrate Armed Forces Day; a national event to promote the global work that the Armed Forces carries out; promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism.

Practice your salute and bring the whole family including the dog(s) and join in the fun! As well as classes there will be a family funfair, dog trade stands and plenty of refreshments.

Entry to the show is free, and for those competitive canines, class fees are £1.50 per dog. Entries will be taken on the day from 10.30am with judging starting at 12.30pm. The winner and five runners up in each class will receive rosettes.
