About This Show

National Championship Dog Show Committee 2023

The officers and committee of Birmingham National Dog Show are delighted to announce our new sustainability strategy. 
One of our longstanding committee members Rebecca Barber has taken on the role of Sustainability Officer with a plan to lead the way in making dog shows more sustainable. 
With the 4Rs in mind (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) the plan is to come up with new initiatives (and bring back some old ones) that will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our shows, whilst making our shows more sustainable financially, ultimately preserving the future of dog showing. 
We have our own ideas as to what would make our shows more sustainable, but ultimately, we want your views as dog show enthusiasts. So we invite you to complete our short survey by clicking on the link below: 
We value the opinions of anyone who has an invested interest in dog shows and we would love to hear from you. 
Thank you in advance for completing our questionnaire and we hope that together we can make a difference!

Artmeis Veteran of the Year Competition
Birmingham Dog Show Society Ltd, home of The NATIONAL DOG SHOW, are delighted to have been invited to host the GRAND FINAL of the ARTMEIS VETERAN OF THE YEAR competition.
This new Annual Competition is designed to show case and reward the UK's very best Veteran Show Dogs. It is hoped that the prestige of this additional competition will inspire exhibitors to support all Group & General Championship Shows that schedule Veteran Classes, Veteran Groups and Best Veteran in Show.
The winners of Best Veteran in Show and Reserve Best Veteran in Show at the 19 UK Championship Shows that schedule these classes and support the new competition will BOTH be invited to a Grand Final each year. This will start with UK Toy Dog Society Championship Show in March 2023. The finals of this competition will be held at The National Dog Show 2024 when the winner will receive £500 and the runner up £250.
The Best Veteran in Show and Reserve Best Veteran in Show at the NATIONAL DOG SHOW 2023 will both qualify for the final in 2024 (unless already qualified and then the judge may award to 4th BVIS).  The organiser of this competition will award £10 and a special rosette to each qualifier on the day.
We schedule separate VETERAN CLASSES for dogs and bitches (no mixed sex Veteran Classes). We offer BVIB rosettes in EVERY breed. We offer a flat fee of £100.00 if you enter 4 or more dogs so why not enter your Veterans too!!. BVIB is declared from ALL unbeaten Veterans and not just from the winners of the Veteran Classes.

Good Citizen Dog Scheme Bronze Testing Change to Schedule
Anyone wishing their dog to undertake the Bronze Testing at the National Dog Show can register for the test on the day.
