British Shooting Show - No Dogs

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the British Shooting Show online booking system recently and just spotted that no dogs are allowed in the show this year.

I must admit, despite being a dog lover and being owned by an Airedale Terrier, I've always found dogs at the show a bit of a pain especially when some bring a mob of them.

However, I do hope that this is well signposted well in advance of the show entrance as it will be annoying for anyone who takes their dog with them and pays on entry only to find they cannot take them in.

Why would anyone take a dog to an indoor exhibition?

You would be surprised.

At the 2016 show I I saw several people with multiple dogs on leads. One guy had 5, yes 5, chocolate labs on tow.

Years ago l described the typical Shooting Show attendee as: “Morbidly obese, wearing top to toe RealTree camo and a twatty leather cowboy hat, being towed by two psychotic Springers.”

Why the dogs in a rammed exhibition hall?

Why the camo? Who’s he trying to impress?

Be careful what you say Tezza, if it's deemed to be even remotely humorous then someone will delete it

Luckily for you that's not funny, so you can get away with it....if it was remotely funny, it'd be binned by now

If you could see me now, you'd see that I'm not even smirking

Is that some form of cheap rip-off Tiger Stripe camo?

Strange ??? my post seems to have been removed. Was it offensive ??? 

It was referring to dog's being taken to the show as part of the dress code. Or words to that effect.

As quite a few have commented why drag a dog round an extremely packed hall, even if permitted like the previous shows. Not only is it stressful for the dog's the trip hazards from leads is just ridiculous.
