Dog show at British Ironworks centre

Dear Blogger

The first Post Lockdown event at the British Ironworks Centre.

Crufts Chairman to Judge German Wired Haired Pointers at British Ironworks Centre

On Sunday 11th July, the top winning German Wirehaired Pointers will be attending the British Ironwork Centre to compete in their breed only open show for the title of Best in Show. This Kennel Club licensed event will be the first time, the dogs and their owners, have come together since the pandemic in 2020 and will be the first dog show ever held at the Centre.  Judge Mr Tom Mather, Crufts Chairman, will be judging each of the dogs based on their closeness to the breed standard, a list of requirements written for each breed based on appearance, movement, and temperament.

As a dog friendly site, Chairman of the British Ironwork Centre, Clive Knowles stated 'We are very honoured and pleased to be hosting this prestigious event. The show will host the best of the very best in the breed and we welcome any other breed clubs and dog organisations to contact us if they want to host their events here'. 

The German Wirehaired Pointer (GWP) is a medium sized hunting, pointing, and retrieving dog, which was originally bred in Germany and has a thick wired coat, hence the name. The breed club will be celebrating their 45th anniversary later in the year.
