    you resemble each other without ‘em!)

  • Best groomed (winner could have best condition coat, or best groom or style etc)

  • Best biscuit catcher

  • BEST in Show - (overall winner selected from the category winners)

All entrants will receive a small bag of dogs treats!

  • Nose2tail dog lead

  • Dog bandana

  • Ball thrower & ball or similar toy

  • Hook (shaped as dog bum & tail)

  • Jar of eezapet

The Best in Show will receive:

Please note: Dogs are only allowed in Waitangi Park if you are registered for this event and only during the time frame of Pooches in the Park! You can't bring your dog without being registered for the competition to Out in the Park - 30th anniversary as we have a special permission only for the Dog Show.
