REGULAR visitors to the Spring Garden & Leisure Show at the South of England Showground at Ardingly in West Sussex will this year notice a difference when shopping for their doggie items.

In years gone by dog product retailers at the show which this years takes place on May 6 and 7 have been scattered all over the vast expanse of the showground. Finding your particular favourite stand hasn’t always been easy and there is nothing more frustrating than passing the same stand for the umpteenth time as you realise you are going nround in circles.

So, mindful of that frustration, the organisers have group all the dog stands in the one area to form what might be described as a doggie village. This is adjacent to the to the show ring where the show will host its usual number of classes with in some cases the winners qualifying for Crufts 2013.

So if it’s a dog lead, dog bed, dog toy, feeding bowl or dog tag you are looking for you will find it much easier to locate those items in future at the Spring & Garden Show this year.
