Nearly 700 dogs, covering 109 different breeds from every State in Australia will compete for the coveted title of Best Dog in Show at the 2016 BBX Royal Hobart Dog Show, to be judged by two international judges from Malaysia and Japan.

Did you know that dogs are more than pets? Dogs can be professionals, just like humans. Many of them even have paid jobs! Dogs can work in airports, police stations and on farms. They protect us, save us, work for us, and give us unconditional love. They really are amazing creatures, and there are many different breeds for the different purposes we require them
