October 2017 IKC SHOW

October 2017 IKC SHOW

The Irish Kennel Club All Breed International Championship Dog Show took place last weekend Saturday & Sunday October 7th & 8th in the National Show Centre, Cloughran, Co.Dublin. GAIN Pet Nutrition were the sponsors of the shows, the brand was well represented on both days with the stand managed by members of the GAIN Pet Nutrition team.  Both shows drew an entry of Approx 3,700 dogs with the Sunday show also attracting a good attendance from the public.

The judges panel was made up of both Irish and International judges. Junior and Champion stakes classes, Best in Show, Best Puppy in Show and Best Veteran in Show were just some of the awards handed out in the ring. GAIN Pet Nutrition awarded prizes of GAIN Elite Lifesize premium pet nutrition range to all Group winners. We also ran a special offer on both show days to customers on the Elite 15kg range. Over the two days the GAIN stand was very busy with visitors and customer enquiries and it was great to meet so many of the dogs who all enjoy the GAIN Pet Nutrition range!

The calendar competition was a huge success and proved very difficult to pick just 13 images. The winners were presented on Sunday with a canvas print of their dog and prizes which were sponsored by PetStop. The lucky winners were;
