Finnish Spitz Show List 2021

This is a List of all UK dog shows known to be holding specific classes for Finnish Spitz in 2021. Several shows that were originally scheduled have been cancelled, postponed, or rescheduled as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.  However, the list may not be exhaustive. It is possible that other Open Shows will have one or more classes for the breed. Changes are possible and you are advised to check the dates and other details if you intend to enter. If you wish to see a monthly Calendar view of Shows and Events, click here.

Championship Shows – the number of Challenge Certificates awarded for Finnish Spitz are shown in brackets (0) or (2).

The Kennel Club designates 10 shows (Crufts, Birmingham National, Scottish Kennel Club, Welsh Kennel Club, Manchester, Bath, Windsor, Leeds City & District, Darlington, LKA) as “all breed championship shows” and they are required to offer CCs for all breeds including Finnish Spitz. 

A further 4 shows will each offer 2 CCs for Finnish Spitz.  Those additional 4 shows are 1 regional show (Richmond), 1 group show (Houndshow), and the 2 breed club shows.
