chequeDog shows can be great fun and an opportunity to talk to breeders and see a variety of purebreds in their best form. But there’s one special dog show that is a worthwhile cause for charity!

Dogs NSW’s Dalwood Children’s Home Charity Shows on November 25 – 26 at Orchard Hills raises funds to support vulnerable, young children and their families in New South Wales. This annual event has been running since 1932 and has raised about $1 million to date!

Surviving tile for webSummer is a great time to be out and about with your dog; swimming, taking long walks, exploring parks, camping and more. However, Dogs NSW warns the hot weather also brings unexpected dangers that can be deadly for our four-legged friends!

Pet owners need to protect their pets from many summer threats, such as bushfires, snake and tick bites, sunburn, thunderstorms, heat stress and dehydration, said veterinarian Dr Karen Hedberg BVSc.

Dr Hedberg is spokesperson for Dogs NSW, the peak body in New South Wales responsible for promoting breeding, showing, trialling, obedience and other canine-related activities, and the ownership of temperamentally and physically sound purebred dogs across the state. She is also a Dogs NSW registered breeder and chair of the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) Canine Health and Wellbeing Committee.

Dogs deserve the title ‘Man’s Best Friend’ for many reasons. They make wonderful companion animals, offering their humans unconditional love and many benefits to their physical and mental health.

Grounds webImagine a permanent, internationally-recognised State Dog Centre featuring numerous show rings, training areas for herding, obedience, agility and more, plus a library and museum showcasing books and artifacts on all things canine, an Education Centre and an off-leash park area for neighbourhood residents. It would be a tail-wagging destination for ‘everybody and their dog’ – literally.

Dogs NSW is the peak body responsible for promoting breeding, showing, trialling, obedience and other canine-related activities and the ownership of temperamentally and physically sound purebred dogs across the state. With more than 10,000 members, Dogs NSW is calling on the NSW Government to consider creating a permanent state dog park on its 27-year-old grounds in Orchard Hills.

“Dogs NSW’s lease with the NSW Government runs for another 11 years with an option to extend until 2038,” said Dogs NSW spokesperson Brian Crump.
