Kennel Club takes Northern Classic Show to Taupo

NZ Kennel Club takes Northern Classic Show to Taupo

The NZ Kennel Club today announced that the Northern Classic Dog Show will be hosted by Taupo for the next five years 2006 - 2010.

“This is a fantastic announcement for dog people in the North Island and will be of significant economic benefit to Taupo, with over 1,000 people expected to pack the town at Anzac weekend 2006,” said Lesley Chalmers, president of the NZ Kennel Club.

The Northern Classic Dog Show is sponsored by Premier Exhibitions and has been secured by Taupo with the support of Destination Lake Taupo.

The NZ Kennel Club is the organization of responsible dog owners. During 22 - 25 April 2006, Taupo will host four days of pure-bred dog shows, obedience competitions, and agility events (think of TUX Wonder Dogs on TV.)

The Classic Dog Shows are second only in prestige to the National Dog Show and are being reinstated after a break of seven years. The last Northern Classic was held in Auckland.

Taupo MP and Minister of Local Government Mark Burton is delighted at the news. "This is good news for Taupo which will benefit from over a thousand visitors next April and for the next four years.

"It's also good news for good dog owners throughout the North Island. The Labour-led Government is encouraging people who take seriously their responsibilities as dog owners and we want them to be able to enjoy the companionship of their animals," said Mr Burton.

"Securing the event has been a collaborative effort between Destination Lake Taupo and Taupo Venues and we're thrilled that the NZ Kennel Club is committing to holding the Northern Classic at Taupo for the next five years," said Destination Lake Taupo's Warwick Hall. His agency is responsible for bringing events to the Taupo region, other recent successes include the International Six Day Enduro and OXFAM Trailwalker.

"Now the dog world is bringing around 1,100 people to town. That will help keep Taupo booming," said Mr Hall
