A great day for Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and families
The first Cavalier Capers for 2015 will be held on Saturday 15th March, starting at 11 am, at the Beefacres Reserve, Pittwater Crescent, Windsor Gardens.
Cavalier Capers is a great day out for all Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and their owners, families, and friends. Bring along a picnic rug or some folding chairs, so you can relax and enjoy the day, either competing in the fun events and games, or watching from a shady spot under the large gum trees.
The feature of the day will be a mini show for pet Cavaliers, with classes for Cavaliers under 12 months of age; 12 months and under 3 years; 3 years and under 7 years; and 7 years and over. When these classes have been judged, the winners will be called back into the ring for the judging of the Best Cavalier of the day.
The Best In Show winner receives a large, bi-coloured sash.
There will also be classes for each of the four Cavalier colours: Black and Tan, Blenheim, Ruby and Tricolour; competitions for the best groomed Cavalier, and the Cavalier with the best weight and condition; and several fun events, including Cavalier Most Like Its Owner, and Best Matched Pair.
Prizes will be awarded for the best Cavalier of each colour.
The Trading Table will offer a delicious selection of cakes and biscuits for sale, as well as Cavalier knick knacks and memorabilia, dog grooming gear, and a variety of other items. The best items are usually snapped up quickly, so it is a good idea to check out the trading table early in the day.
The trading table offers a good selection of cakes, biscuits and other items.
A barbecue lunch, pancakes for dessert, and tea, coffee, and cool drinks will be available. Raffle prizes will be a large basket of goodies, which includes a good selection of Easter chocolates, and a beautiful, hand made and decorated ceramic dog bowl.
Learn some easy care tips and tricks, and the best way to keep your Cavalier's coat in good condition, by watching the grooming demonstration. If you don't like cutting your Cavalier's nails yourself, or expressing its anal glands, an experienced breeder will perform these chores for you during the day, for a small charge.
Spectators and their Cavaliers enjoy the day, relaxing under the shade of large gum trees.
Cavalier Capers will be cancelled if, on Thursday 12th March, the forecast temperature for Saturday 14th March is 37 degrees or above. If the event is cancelled a notice will be placed on the home page of the Club's web site, and on the club's Facebook page.
