Here at NAWT Clacton we would be getting ready for our Dog Show and Fun Day now, which was scheduled for the 30th May, however Covid-19 has put pay to that! So, as the saying goes - if the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain - in other words, we are going to bring our popular and well supported show to you via the wonders of technology.  Even better because it's now online we have categories for our feline friends.

  1. Fabulous Fella (Best Male Dog)
  2. Loveliest Lady (Best Female Dog)
  3. Rescued Rover
  4. Happiest Hound (Smiles, grins, toofs)
  5. Tiger King (Best Male Cat)
  6. Tiger Queen (Best Female Cat)
  7. Remarkable Rescue (Cats)
  8. Great Outdoors (Dogs and cats; gardens, walks etc)
