The Canine Competition is one of Ekka’s largest and most popular competitions and attracts an average of 2,400 entries. From Border Collies and Chow Chows to French Bulldogs and Poodles, up to 217 different breeds will be on show for Ekka guests to marvel at. The stakes are high with judges flying in from Slovenia, Japan, Ireland and Serbia to put our canine competitors to the test. Don’t miss the brand new Feature Working Dogs Show (August 18), Dances with Dogs (August 20) and the ever-popular Best Puppy In Group (August 19). Tails will also be wagging when the Champion of Show is crowned on August 19, with last year’s winner a Poodle.
