German shepherds strut their stuff
The Waikato German Shepherd Dog Club is hosting its annual championship show at Bedford Park this weekend.
Close to 75 dogs from across the North Island will be on exhibition, with Spanish judge Jens Bekker Olsen judging over two days.
Local member Jan Saltiel said anyone interested in german shepherds was welcome to go along for a look.
‘‘There will be all different classes down there, from puppies right through to adults,’’ she said.
‘‘Most people are more than happy to talk to people about their dogs.’’
Her dog Vonpeta Nuffin, better known as Lester, was named overall champion at the show in Hinuera last year.
The event starts at 10.30am on Saturday and 8.30am on Sunday and is free for all members of the public.
