The Allora Kennel Club will host a five show Extravaganza on the Downs this Friday. Showing of purebred dogs has been important part of Australia’s culture since emigration from England.

According to records, the first dog show in Australia was help in Hobart, Tasmania, in 1862 with the purpose to educate the public on the useful breeds of dogs. Through Australia’s civilisation, the importance of livestock is clear. Hence, dog showing became an integral part of agricultural shows as time went on. In 1870, the National Agricultural Society was formed which included the exhibition of some dogs and also poultry.

It wasn’t until 1948 when Queensland’s official dog affairs, including the registration and documentation of purebred dogs, through an alliance with the Royal National Association (RNA) under the banner of the Canine Control Council of Queensland. Now, dog shows are as popular are ever with purebreds from across the country traveling to compete.

For the Extravaganza, judges from across the country will have the job of choosing the best competing canine. Dogs Queensland General Manager, Rob Harrison, said the dog show is an important event in a pedigree dog owner’s calendar.

“The show is a wonderful event, not only for our members but also the general public who have the chance to chat to the owners and breeders, and watch the judging,” Rob said.

“Family and friends from the local community are invited to come down over the weekend to show their support for the much-loved breeds.”
