The Awards

The PAWSCARS will honour those deserving recognition for their achievements and hard work throughout the UK dog show scene.

The organisers hope the PAWSCARS will help raise the bar and encourage those who are part of the world of dogs to be proud of the fact and to work in all ways possible to improve the dog show scene. The PAWSCARS will raise the profile not only of the winners but of the nominees in each category and we hope that the prospect of being nominated for a PAWSCAR is a goal that people will aim for in the future.

I would like to wish Gavin, and all those involved, a very successful charity event."
