Petplan launches Showing Guide for Dog lovers

Petplan, the UK's favourite pet insurance provider, has produced a 'Guide To Dog Showing' for dog lovers across the nation, as part of their drive to get more people interested in attending dog shows.

The helpful booklet was written by world renowned dog show judge Andrew Brace, and provides fun and practical information on the different aspects of dog showing. It covers everything from how new-comers can get started in dog showing, to a brief history of dog shows and also includes the types of shows available to enter, what judges are looking for, and much more.

The author, Andrew Brace, is one of only fifteen UK judges who are approved to judge all breeds of dogs; he also judges competitions in the UK and abroad and is also a regular contributor to some of the world's best selling specialist dog publications in the UK, USA, Australia and Sweden.

Petplan Marketing Manager Alison Andrew commented, "Dog shows are great events for everyone, and we want to open the event up to dog lovers all over the UK by making the show easier for the general public to understand."

The 'Guide To Dog Showing' booklet will be available at the Petplan tent, at the Manchester Dog Show in January or you can visit http://www.petplan.co.uk/my-petplan/show-guide.asp to download a PDF version of the guide.
