Thousands of beautiful canines will gather at Sydney Olympic Park from March 23 to April 3 to compete for Best in Show at the Sydney Royal Dog Show - the biggest and most prestigious canine competition in the country!

Sponsored this year by ADVANCE™, the Sydney Royal Dog Show is supported by Dogs NSW, the controlling body of pure bred dog breeding and exhibiting in NSW. It is a popular part of the Sydney Royal Easter Show, which is the largest event in the Southern Hemisphere organised by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW.

“The ADVANCE™ Sydney Royal Dog Show is expected to attract thousands of entries across Conformation, Agility, Obedience, Junior Handling and Sweepstakes classes during the 12 days of competition – all vying to be crowned best in their breed and discipline,” said Brian Crump, Dogs NSW spokesperson.

The ADVANCE™ Sydney Royal Dog Show showcases excellence in the dog world, setting the competitive benchmark for canine competitions nationally.

“The show also recognises the important role of Australian National Kennel Council registered breeders in developing quality, sound, healthy puppies for Australian families, and promotes public understanding of the place of domestic animals in our community,” he said.

“Given the ongoing demand for puppies, public education about choosing a pure breed suitable for their lifestyle and finding a responsible ANKC-registered breeder are paramount in stamping out irresponsible dog breeders and keeping dogs out of shelters and in homes where they belong,” said Mr Crump.
