The Club holds three dog shows every year, which are open to all.

The Spring Open Show is held in February, the Summer Open Show is held in June and the Championship Show is held in October. The venues for the open shows may change each year, but the Championship Show has a fixed venue - the new Kennel Club building at Stoneleigh.
