Annual Championship Show

Exeter Dog Training Club holds an annual two day Kennel Club licensed Open Obedience Show every May in Cullompton.  Our 2015 Show was on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May.  The Championship Show is on the Saturday and the Open Show on the Sunday.  Click on the links below to access the downloads.


PDFA ('Paignton') Show

We also run an Open Obedience Show on behalf of Paignton & District Fanciers Association (PDFA), as part of their four day Championship Dog Show in early August at Westpoint, Clyst St Mary, near Exeter.  This year the Obedience Show is on Tuesday 4th August 2015:



In 2010, due to popular demand, we held our first ever two day show. Exeter Dog Training Club's Show was awarded Championship Obedience status from 2012. Our show is one of 46 shows that include a Championship Class C (Obedience Certificate), sometimes referred to as a 'ticket' class. Winning this class will qualify a dog to compete at the Crufts the following year. See the Kennel Club website for more information.

This arrangement is set to continue.


Our Show venue is the Cullompton Community Association fields and Cullompton Rangers Football Club at Speed's Meadow in Cullompton.  Click to find the Show venue.

If you are new to the sport of competitive obedience and would like to find out more, start with the Kennel Club's Getting Started in Obedience and Why Not Try Obedience. 

The Show is made possible by the hard work of members, friends and families of both Exeter Dog Training Club and Cullompton Rangers Football Club.  Many hands make light work, so we are always on the look out for more helpers.  If you are able to help with any of the following, please talk to a Committee Member or contact us:
  • Setting up the venue (pitching tents, rings etc) on Friday 25 May.
  • Marshalling the venue on Saturday 26 and/or Sunday 27 May.
  • Stewarding on Saturday 26 and/or Sunday 27 May.
  • Packing away and clearing up after the show on Sunday 27 May.
