Bath selected for Petplan Junior Stakes 2011 show.
Petplan, the UK's favourite pet insurance provider, has announced that the Bath Canine Society will host a General Championship Show will host a Petplan's Junior Stakes qualifier next year.
The Bath Canine Society will receive support from Petplan, which includes a £5,000 financial investment, to help with running costs and advertising, and as well as receiving marketing support, which will include being promoted to Petplan's extensive customer base. The show will feature in Petplan's bi-annual customer magazine, monthly e-newsletters and dedicated websites for customers and breeders. The additional exposure will help increase public awareness and create excitement within the breeder and dog showing community.
The Bath Canine Society site which owns its own ground is situated on over 50 acres of land and surrounded by the stunning hills of Bath. In its 133rd year, the show will be offering free entry to visitors and will be providing seminars, demonstrations and exhibits to help educate visitors and promote the importance of canine health and welfare, as well as a crèche to enable pet owners to leave their dogs whilst they enjoy the show.
Ben Ford, Secretary, is thrilled and excited about the prospect of hosting a Petplan Junior Stakes qualifier at the 2011 Bath Show.
Petplan's Marketing Manager Alison Andrew commented, "We were delighted with the response from the General Championship Shows who wanted to be part of this competition, and I'd like to thank all the shows that took the time to make a submission. It was a very tough decision, but we'd like to congratulate all the selected shows. We're looking forward to working with the Bath Canine Society and I have no doubt this year's Petplan Junior Stakes will be bigger and better than ever."
The Petplan Junior Stakes, now in its 17th year, has established itself as a popular and well supported event in the UK dog showing circuit, open to dogs and bitches between 6-8 months old, and the four chosen shows have all expressed their delight at the opportunity to be involved in such a well established competition.
The remaining shows chosen to host a Petplan Junior Stakes qualifier are: Southern Counties Canine Association, Blackpool Canine Society and Darlington Championship Dog Show.
