Organised dog shows, like the annual Royal Adelaide Show Judging Days are not only a brilliant chance to enjoy watching pampered canines, they are a terrific opportunity to speak to owners about their breeds.

There are dogs to suit large and small gardens, ones that are energetic and ones that love sitting on laps. Maybe you’re looking for a dog that doesn’t shed hair or one you’d love to pamper. They are all here.

Picking the right dog for your yard and lifestyle is essential in having a harmonious pet and owner relationship. My suggestion is, don’t rush in, do your homework. Talk to owners, read up, ask your vet. Drop into a dog show. It will help you in making the right pet choice.
