Welcome to Bridgwater & DCS!

We are thrilled to invite you to explore the exciting world of dogs with us. Whether you're a passionate dog owner, a dedicated breeder, a seasoned handler, or simply an admirer of canine companionship, our society is a hub where all things canine come to life.

At Bridgwater & District Canine Society, we're more than just a community – we're a family united by our shared love for dogs. Our society has a rich history dating back to its establishment, and over the years, we have grown into a vibrant and inclusive network that celebrates the diverse breeds, talents, and stories that make each dog special.

We offer two Kennel Club Licensed Events per year; our Spring Open Show in March and our Members Limited Show in October, designed to showcase the incredible capabilities and unique qualities of dogs, while fostering a spirit of camaraderie among fellow enthusiasts. We are just one of about 1,800 registered societies registered in the UK, holding a total of over 3,000 licensed dog shows a year - all dedicated to the Royal Kennel Club's primary objective "to promote in every way the general improvement of dogs".

Whether you're a seasoned exhibitor or a newcomer to the world of dog showing, we offer weekly Ringcraft Training nights dedicated to helping you become the best possible handler for your furry friend.

Explore our website, check out our upcoming events, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to become a member. We look forward to welcoming you into our canine-loving community!
