The Fun Dog Show will be brought to you by Gillies Leap Fun Dog Shows
Our aim is to bring the FUN back into dog shows!
We take bookings from the start of the day and judging starts at 1.30. Classes are £1.50 each with rosettes awarded for first to third places. The winner of each class is automatically entered into the final class of the day – ‘Show Champion’ – and the winner of this will gain free entry to the Essex Game and Country Show in September (Sunday) where we will have the Final Championship Show (after the usual dog show on that day) and our overall winner of the season will be decided.
Please note: We are not a competitive dog show and we do not take ourselves at all seriously
(winner of the waggiest tail at one show last year was a spectating spaniel; and winner of’dog most like owner was once a cat!)
The head judge’s decision is final and he can be bribed with beer, but no-one ever believes him (much to his disappointment). A lot of our class judges are very surprised to find themselves in the ring (and are often under the age of ten) and it makes their day!
If you are looking for a regulated and serious dog show, this one may not be for you. We are a FUN dog show. Our aim is for you to leave the show smiling and we know that whatever happens in the ring you will always take the best dog home.

We will be raising money through the Fun Dog Show at Burghley Game and Country Fair for Jericho House Drug Rehab Centre in Derby. Some of the lads from the centre will be with us for the weekend and will be very pleased to answer any questions you may have and tell you more about the fantastic work they do.
