‘Central Bark’ drive top dog venue

‘Central Bark’ drive top dog venue

New Zealand’s top dog event gets underway at Waitakere’s new Trusts Stadium later this month – at Central Bark Drive.

Over 3000 pedigree dogs will compete in the 2004 Pro Plan New Zealand Kennel Club National Dog Show. The Trusts Stadium will be transformed into series of show rings where 136 breeds of dogs vie for gold in breed showing, obedience and agility from Thursday 23 September to Saturday 25 September.

This is the first time the championship event has been held in Auckland says Ray Greer, President of the NZKC

“It’s the first time the event has ever been out of Wellington in 50 years. We’ve chosen Waitakere because we see the dog control policies there as the best practice model out of 60 local authorities,” says Mr Greer.

Five overseas judges are expected from the UK, US, Finland, Holland and Malaysia. The Best in Show will be judged by Finland’s Anike Moe.

Each day’s events run from 9am to 5pm. Tickets can be bought in advance from Ticketek or can be bought from the door. Adults will cost $10, children $5, family tickets $15.

Following the championship event, on Sunday 26 September, there will be a chance for every dog in Waitakere to get together at the Trusts Stadium at Woofs Day Out which is being organised by the Lions Club of Ranui-Swanson
