24th Annual ADANA Dog Show – 4 May


Adana Dog Show

ADANA’s blue ribbon event, the annual dog show, is scheduled to take place on Sunday May 4th 2014 in the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona. Since its inception more than 20 years ago, the show has grown from strength to strength, attracting more and more participants and spectators. It is a great fun day out for all the family, and, even more importantly, an important fundraiser for ADANA with the potential to bring in more than 5,000 Euros for the care of abandoned dogs.

This year’s show will include classes to test obedience and agility as well as the usual light-hearted beauty pageant. The highly popular classes to find Estepona’s hottest dogs and coolest canine chicas return along with specialist classes for small and large pedigrees and Spanish breeds. As ever, the judges will be looking especially at ex ADANA dogs as well as older, beloved companions, all of whom could be worthy winners of the coveted Pippa Trophy.

The show will, of course, have lots of stalls, offering a wide range of goodies for people and dogs: jewellery, gifts, accessories for canines and humans and much more. The Great British Café is back, run by Trisha and her volunteers, offering hot tea, bacon butties and mouth watering cakes and bikkies. And, after the success of the Christmas champagne bar, ADANA are introducing it to the dog show – should prove particularly popular with the winners!

How you can help – the show is incredibly labour intensive, and ADANA need your help with all of the following:

  • preparing and cleaning the venue
  • helping with publicity and leafleting
  • baking and buying for the café
  • stewarding
  • taking stands
  • sponsoring a class – or helping to find sponsors for classes
