Ger­man shep­herds strut their stuff

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

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.
