As you are probably aware, our Colour Format Open Show has been cancelled due to current lockdown restrictions. However, we felt the show must go on. As of some light relief the M&WEGDC Committee has organised an Online Colour Format Show via Facebook. To enter click HERE or if you don’t use Facebook further details may be obtained from Alice Hocking. The closing date for entries will be midnight on the 4th February with the results being announced on the 7th February, the original date of the show. Whilst the entry is free, you may wish to make an entry donation with all proceeds going to Great Dane Care.

Rosettes will be awarded and posted to the winners of Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, Best Opposite Sex, Best Puppy in Show and Best Veteran in Show.

The judges for the event are shrouded in mystery, however, they are all KC approved Breed Specialist at CC level and will be revealed after the event. PLEASE NOTE they are NOT, repeat NOT our original line-up of judges as we hope to run a live show later in the year.

The Committee sincerely hope you will enjoy our first show of the year. We’ve all got a bit more time on our hands, so why not have a go and for a good cause.



As of 1st January 2021, the Breed Council Health Sub Committee’s online UK Great Dane Breed Health Survey has now gone live. Please use this link to access the survey SURVEY LINK

The new government lock down has forced the cancellation of the Midland & West of England GDC Colour Format Show due to take place on Sunday 7th February 2021.

We are hopeful of trying to re-schedule the show later in the year, when this current dreadful COVID-19 climate has passed.

The Committee would like to express its thanks to judges Sharon Nunn and Annette Harrison plus Best in Show judge Di Spavin who have been so helpful and understanding during these challenging times.

We hope to see you all again when it is very safe to do so.
