Artmeis Veteran of the Year Competition
This new Annual Competition is designed to show case and reward the UK's
very best Veteran Show Dogs. It is hoped that the prestige of this
additional competition will inspire exhibitors to support all Group &
General Championship Shows that schedule Veteran Classes, Veteran Groups
and Best Veteran in Show.
The winners of Best Veteran in Show and Reserve Best Veteran in Show at the
19 UK Championship Shows that schedule these classes and support the new
competition will both be invited to a Grand Final each year. This will
start with UK Toy Dog Society Championship Show in March 2023. The finals
of this competition will be held at The National Dog Show 2024 when the
winner will receive £500 and the runner up £250.
The Best Veteran in Show and Reserve Best Veteran in Show at the National
Dog Show 2023 will qualify for the final in 2024 (unless already qualified
and then the judge may award to 4th BVIS). The organiser of this
competition will award £10 and a special rosette to each qualifier on the
National Terrier are delighted to announce that we are taking part in the
above competition. Terriers will be represented in the final as the
qualifiers for the final from National Terrier will be the two dogs who
are First and Second place winners in the National Terrier Veteran Stakes
who will be given a rosette to commemorate the occasion and so
automatically qualify for the final.
