2022 Purina Pro Plan National Dog Show Week

5-9 October 2022

The 2022 Purina Pro Plan National Dog Show will be held entirely at the Purina Pro Plan Auckland Exhibition Centre, in Ardmore.

The schedule below details the group allocations for each day. During the event there will be an opportunity for each group to be be judged at the National Dog Show and the Ardmore show on the same day. Best In Show judging for both the NDS and the Ardmore Shows will occur on Saturday 8 October. Detailed schedules will be provided nearer to the event.

In addition to these two shows, we are scheduling a further Championship Show — the Encore Show — that will be judged on Sunday 9 October. To ensure an early finish time, this show will have a separate judge for each group.

All groups for both NDS and the Ardmore Shows will be conducted within the indoor venue. The venue will have three rings in operation each day and will include grandstand seating for 150 people, with viewing for each ring provided. The indoor venue will have allocated holding rings for each group for use immediately preceding the breeds judging, and will also host a variety of trade stalls. Catering and coffee will be provided through contracted food vans and will be available throughout the duration of the event.

Following each day’s judging, the indoor venue will be transformed to enable up to five rings to be available for specialty shows. Clubs wanting to conduct a specialty show should contact Karla Magnus to confirm a ring booking.

We are currently finalising arrangements for the provision of grooming spaces for exhibitors and will advise these arrangements once they are confirmed. Members will not able to set up their grooming spaces within the indoor venue. We are also in the process of finalising the ability for members to pre-book a parking space and will advise the booking arrangement once these are confirmed.

We are excited to be able to deliver the 2022 Purina Pro Plan National Dog Show at our Auckland venue, the first time a NDS has been held exclusively at Ardmore and we look forward to seeing you for this special event.

Planning is well underway, and we look forward to providing you with progressive updates as we approach the forthcoming NDS. We will also have further information about property enhancements that are being planned to ensure your visit is made as enjoyable as possible.
