Whether your Sealyham is a pet, show or working dog there is an activity for you to get involved with together. Giving you great opportunities to meet fellow dog lovers and enjoy lots of fun with your dog.
Sealyham's are special dogs full of life with big personalities.
They have a unique sense of humour, they are very active but can drop asleep on a soft sofa in a minute, they are clever, stubborn and they are great jokers.
The most popular form of canine competition in this country is the dog show - the contest for Kennel Club registered pure-bred dogs, such as those seen at Crufts. Dog showing or exhibiting is an exciting competitive activity where dogs compete against each other for prizes or awards. It is a competition where a dog’s attributes and conformation are compared against a breed standard for its breed.
