This is a List of all UK dog shows believed to be holding specific classes for Finnish Spitz in 2023. 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 Dog Show, 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.
Schedules, entry forms, and other details for all General Championship shows and many Open shows can be viewed or downloaded at either Fosse Data, Higham Press, or Arena Print/Zooza websites when available. Entries and payments can also be made online at either Fosse Data, Higham Press, or Zooza sites. To view details on those sites click on “Higham“, “Fosse“, or “Arena” in the “Entries” column. If you prefer to send your entries and payments by post, printed show schedules can be picked up at many dog shows or obtained from the Show Secretary.
