2007 PRO PLAN National Dog Show to be held at Porirua


The NZ Kennel Club today announced that the 2007 PRO PLAN National Dog Show would be held at Porirua from 27 – 30 September next year.

“We are delighted that the National Dog Show will again be held in Porirua,” said John Perfect, NZKC President.

“The Nationals were held at Porirua from 1981 to 2003. Then NZKC took the country’s biggest dog event around the country for the benefit of members, to Auckland (2004), to the South Island for the first time (Christchurch 2005), and then to Palmerston North (2006) where it had previously been held 1967 – 69.

“NZ Kennel Club had previously indicated to members that the 2007 Nationals would be held in the lower North Island and we today confirm that,” said Mr Perfect.

The event is expected to bring over 2,000 people and their dogs to Porirua in a four day extravaganza that will generate $2.4M of economic activity for the city.

Venues will include the NZKC Exhibition Centre in Prosser Street, the Porirua Recreation Centre and Te Rauparaha Park.

“We are determined to put on an excellent event for our members who will be coming from Kaitaia to Invercargill. The show has grown massively in the last decade and so we will have some challenges to deliver the high standards expected of the National Dog Show,” said Mr Perfect.

Decisions already taken include:
 A marquee to provide the grooming area to prepare dogs for the show rings.
 Obedience rings will be indoors in the side hall of the Exhibition Centre
 Agility competitions will take place on Te Rauparaha Park next to the Porirua Recreation Centre.
