Tails will be wagging at Sheffield on the weekend of 6th & 7th October.
The Burnie and District Kennel Club are holding 3 shows at the Sheffield Steam Centre 6 Spring St Sheffield, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October 2018.
Organisers claiming the canine event will provide an economic windfall for business in the area.
Over 50 per cent of exhibitors will book accommodation, 75 per cent purchase food and drinks at least twice over the weekend, 50 per cent opt for an evening meal at a local venue and 36 per cent will refuel their vehicle. Representing an influx of approximately $20,000 for local businesses.
The economic benefit to local communities is substantial with an estimated annual spend of over $2 million dollars by exhibitors showing, trialling and travelling across Tasmania.
Dog shows and trialling events such as obedience, agility and rally, have long been part of the Tasmanian landscape with the oldest kennel club in Australia still operating in the state. The first dog show ever held in Australia was held in Hobart over 150 years ago.
Each year Dogs Tasmania, which represents over 1000 Tasmanian dog owners and purebred breeder dogs in Tasmania, host more than 265 canine events across the state. All supported by visitors who travel long distances to participate.
Why not get your canine fix and visit Sheffield this weekend start time is 8.30am, visitors are always welcome to attend and entry is free.
