The Chiswick House Dog Show this year will have a Dogtor Who theme to mark 60 years of the time travelling TV series.

It is taking place on the cricket pitch at Chiswick House Gardens on Sunday 24 September between 11am and 4.15pm

With classes ranging from Naughtiest Dog to Prettiest Bitch and from My Dog’s Got Talent to Best Veteran, every dog is welcome – big, small, pedigree, mutt, young and old.

Run by the community for the community, it has raised £115,778 since its inception in 2004 to fund its activities and maintain the historic gardens. All the money raised goes directly towards maintenance and improvement projects in the gardens. In addition to tree management and path improvement projects, it has also funded specific dog-related ventures, from poo bins and poo bag dispensers to a new golf buggy and fencing around the dog free picnic area. The Dogs Trust donate their (biodegradable) dog poo bags, which are available in the dispensers by each gate.

As a result of the 2021 and 2022 Dog Show, the Organising Committee were able to make a contribution of £13,000 towards the continued maintenance of trees, shrubs and bushes.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
