There were 14 classes and the overall Judges’ Choice winner was Oscar – a Merle Border collie, with his handler Kelly.

All classes were given rosettes to sixth place and a goodie bag for the winner.

Owner of the Westby Lane centre Tony Sanderson said: “It was brilliant.

“I’m so pleased that it was one of the biggest shows we have ever had.”
