Canine Competition presented by Black Hawk

Clever Canines

The Canine Competition presented by Black Hawk 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 at Ekka this year.

The stakes are high with judges flying in from overseas to put your canine competitors through their paces. Some of the world's best examples of breed will be on show as exhibitors take to the floor. 

Don’t miss the Feature Show, the toe-tapping Dances with Dogs and the super cute Best Puppy In Group. Tails will also be wagging when the Champion of Show is crowned, with 2017's winner a Pharoah Hound.
