Do you own a dog? Do you want to own one?
Do you want to find out about how to handle your dog better? Then be at Kyadondo Rugby grounds this Sunday for the Ultimate Dog Show.
The show, which will be the third edition of its kind, is the brainchild of businessman Nicholas Ndirangu, and is something similar to the goat races or fashion shows in town. It also offers the chance to show off the breed of dog you have. From the local to the exotic, they all have a place at the show. What makes it better is that the dogs are entered free of charge. Any dog owner can come with as many dogs as possible.
Last year, a dog called Piglet emerged the best. It was extremely intelligent, exhibiting extraordinary traits of obedience and dog tricks. To up the stakes, the organisers of the show have this time round teamed up with Royal Canines from Kenya.
Royal Canines will also be bringing in some dogs. The organisers have also upped the prizes in the various categories. This time the best dog in any of tracking, agility, tricky or obedience will walk away with free dog food for a year or free grooming for a year.
As a way of spicing it up, the show will also have new categories, such as ‘Best look-alike’ – which will be selected by the fans basing on which owners look like their dogs – ugliest dog and most shy dog. There will also be a dog red carpet.
Additionally, top vets, dog handlers and trainers will be available to offer show goers some tips on the different conditions and how to handle their dogs. Uganda Police Force, which recently started breeding sniffer dogs, has already confirmed participation. Patrons will part with Shs 10,000 for children and Shs 20,000 for adults.
May the best dog win!
