Find a dog show.

Interesting new initiative from the Kennel Club. They certainly seem to be trying at the moment.

“The Kennel Club’s database of licensed shows and trials is available for you to search for competitions to enter or to attend as a spectator. There are literally thousands of clubs all over the country holding varying types of shows.

These competitions are all organised by clubs and societies associated with the Kennel Club and are held in accordance with strict rules and regulations to ensure dogs are judged on a level playing field. The events are managed with the health and safety of those attending being paramount. Above all, each competition supports the Kennel Club’s commitment to health and welfare of dogs.

You can search for a specific activity within a chosen area and within a specific period of time. Find a Show has been designed to also support club and society secretaries to find out what other events are being held at the same time as their shows or to research an alternative date should the need arise. The database of shows and trials is updated on a daily basis, however if you believe an entry is incorrect please contact

You can search for shows in the following activities:

  • Agility
  • Breed / Dog Showing
  • Canicross Race
  • Flyball
  • Heelwork To Music
  • Obedience
  • Rally
  • Working Trial/Bloodhound Trial

This should make canine activities more accessible to those who already take part in them, and more readily available for those who wish to take up new activities with their dog. Visit
