East of England Championship Dog Show reunites with Just Dogs Live

The organiser of the East of England Championship Dog Show has unveiled a new format for next year’s event.
 
The show, now in its 56th year - will run alongside a re-instated Just Dogs Live on 4-6 July 2014 at the East of England Showground in Peterborough Arena.
 
Show chairman John Orbell said after “two difficult years” the team are pleased to reunite the two shows. “Just Dogs Live was always very successful and popular, and it was hugely disappointing when it was curtailed in 2012.”
 
The East of England Show used to incorporate the Just Dogs Live and Championship Dog Shows as part of its core offering.
 
The Championship Dog Show was held in conjunction with the East of England Show up until 1999, and then co-located with the Just Dogs Live event up until 2012.
 
“In recent years the Championship Dog Show has been moved around to accommodate the requirements of the East of England Show, but with the show no longer being run in its old format, we have much more flexibility and more space available to grow the dog show,” said Keith Dalton, managing director of Showground Services, who now run events for the East of England Agricultural Society.
 
Caroline Kisko, secretary of the Kennel Club said: “We are delighted to throw our support behind the reinstatement of Just Dogs Live, which was such a success previously. Anything that provides an opportunity to showcase the joy dogs bring to our lives is to be applauded.”
 
Highlights of the combined event will include live music, animal antics, a trade and craft fair and family activities. A full schedule is yet to be announced.
