About Us

Bournemouth Canine Association is a professional and friendly organisation, ready to welcome everyone including newcomers to our show.  We have a wealth of show years experience and our committee are dedicated to give you, the Exhibitors, the best show possible!  We are happy to help in person or by telephone.

We also welcome our Stewards and Judges, some back from previous years.  They are a very important part of the show.  Our Judges are experienced and support the high standards that we expect with honesty and impartiality.  We adhere to the Kennel Club’s regulations and the Judges’ Code of Best Practice as per the Guide of Judges and Stewards.

BCA are fortunate, as owners of Pikes Farm to make available the use of our 50 acres of beautiful grounds and facilities to other organisations/societies for their own shows or events, it’s the perfect place.  No show is too big or too small, plenty of car parking, camping areas and room to spread out.   Not to mention, so many other beauty spots and places to visit in the local vicinity.  See our Local Area Tab with Places of Interest.
