It’s the 82nd year the Norfolk and Norwich Canine Society has held its Two Day Premier Show in conjunction with the Royal Norfolk Show and, while it occupies its own area of the showground, showgoers are warmly invited to visit.

There’s always a welcoming atmosphere and entry is free to people attending the Royal Norfolk Show, plus they may spot some rather familiar colours.

Society secretary Cheryl Holmes said the Society’s colours are green and yellow and they aimed to keep that theme throughout the dog show area, right down to the floral decorations.

“A lot of people do notice the colours,” she says, adding that a superb small army of helpers, with the society committee, create a brilliant occasion.

“It takes a lot of work and friends and family help out, we could not do it without them,” she adds.

The 900 dogs are spread over the two days of the show, with classes for utility, hound, toy and terrier on day one, and working, pastoral and gun dog the second. A best on the day dog, puppy and veteran is selected each day and an overall best in show too.

Owners bring their dogs from far and wide too, travelling not just from all over Norfolk and East Anglia but from as far away as Aberdeen.

“It is a show within a show and it does have a really lovely atmosphere,” she added.
