Dogs and owners were treated to energetic displays by Capable Canines training, and had the opportunity to visit stalls organised by Labradoodle Rescue, Outsider Tart, Artisan Ice Creams, Chiswick Pets, The Dogs Trust, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, The Cinnamon Trust, the Metropolitan Police (Chiswick), Dogs Delight and the Hepzibah Gallery of Brackenberry Road. Tails of the City provided a dog crèche as in previous years.

Organised by CHOW (Chiswick House Organised Walkers) in association with Chiswick House Friends, the show raised over £3,000 to be spent on dog-related benefits within Chiswick House Gardens.
The organisers would like to thank all their supporters who helped to make the event such a success, including the judges, volunteers, 20th Chiswick Scout Group, Hounslow Council and the management team at Chiswick House, and most importantly everyone who visited the show.
