Ladies Kennel Association
General Championship Dog Show licensed by the Kennel Club; this is the largest dog show in the UK after Crufts attracting an entry of 10,500 dogs over two days.
Known for its Christmassy atmosphere, with over 80 Trade Stands selling a wide variety of products both doggy and human, LKA is a great opportunity for that last minute shopping for the dog that has everything!
This year we are delighted to be once again hosting a round of the Kennel Club’s new competition ”Obreedience” showcasing breeds of dogs not always immediately associated with obedience competition! There is also the opportunity to watch classes of Rally Obedience another first for a General Championship Show in the UK.
The NEC is in the perfect location for car travel - 8 miles east of Birmingham city centre, and at the heart of the UK motorway network.
With 16,500 spaces available we’ve got plenty of room for you. Follow the electronic signage or directions provided by our traffic team to get you to the right car park area for your event. Once you’ve parked you can either take a free shuttle bus or walk to the halls using our sign posted footpaths.
