Entries will be taken on the day (12pm)Judging will commence at 1pm.  If you are shy about being in the ring with your Beagle, we will have people on hand to show you what to do, or show your dog for you.  If you are not sure what class or stakes to enter, we can advise you on the day.

Thank you to everyone who turned up, and helped out, at our Ribbon Parade.  We had a really good entry of 39 Beagles.  It really was something seeing so many Beagles lined up in the show ring.  The Judge commented that she liked the quality of the bitches, and as you can see from the results; the ‘girls’ did really well.
