Toronto, ONT., (TNWS) – Some of Canada’s top show dogs will be starring in the 2015 Caledon Dog Show, being brought to you with Royal Canin, which starts on Friday November 27 and runs until Sunday November 29, in Hall 6, of the International Centre, at 6900 Airport Road.
Come and see hundreds of lovable and well-groomed canines, representing 130 of your favourite breeds, as they are paraded in the ring by skilled handlers at Canada’s top indoor dog show, and the only one to take place in Toronto this year.
The long-awaited event for GTA dog lovers features Specialty and Booster shows; including the Royal Canin National Breeders’ Classic, a must-see one-of-a-kind competition taking place at 12 pm on November 28. This is an event that can only be found at the Caledon Dog Show.
The hugely-successful fan-favourite Breeders’ Clas¬sics features mul¬tiple teams of experienced breeders and their dogs as they compete for more than $4,000 in prize money.
Some of Canada’s upcoming stars in the dog world will also be competing in the Canadian National Junior Handling Finals, featuring top teenage handlers, at 12 pm on November 29. This is a must for canine enthusiasts as Obedience and Conformation handlers compete for the prestigious honour of National Champion and prize money.
The winner of the Conformation competition will represent Canada on the World Stage at the annual Crufts Dog Show, the largest of its kind, in England next March.
An international panel of distinguished judges that includes: Jacque¬line Quirόs-Kubat, of Argentina; Stefan Sinko, of Slovenia, and Desmond Murphy, of the U.S., will preside over the fan-pleasing event.
“Fans will love some of the dogs as the event gets bigger and better every year. It is one of the exciting events we stage yearly for pure¬breds that are popular with dog owners,” says Judi Orsi, president of the Caledon Kennel Association. “Any dog can be a great dog, but a pure¬bred dog can open a whole new world for its owner.”
This year Royal Canin Special Events Presentations will feature police dogs and those used for scent detection as drug dogs at airports.
Talk to the many exciting vendors and check out a wide-range of services and products available for doggies and their masters for sale for those on your shopping list. And, you wouldn’t want to miss the popular Baby Puppy Classes, which is set for November 27 and is for one day only.
There is also the “For the Love of Purebred Dogs,” organization which will give fans conducted behind-the-scene tours of the show site and grooming area to learn about what happens at a dog show, and the chance to meet and talk to breeders under one roof.
