Celebrating British Dogdom
We are nearing our sixth Pawscars event but back in 2013, Jilly's Jolly Jaunt was an outstanding success, raising just short of £50,000 for good causes and bringing the world of dogs together in a quite remarkable way.
The story could have ended there, but two weeks after the funds from the Jolly Jaunt were distributed to Great Ormond Street Hospital, DogLost and the Kennel Club Charitable Trust the next chapter of the story was started which led to the inaugural PAWSCARS on March 4th 2014 at The Hilton Metropole Birmingham NEC.
On that evening awards were made that recognised success, hard work and effort in all areas of the pedigree dog show scene and was a celebration of all that is good in the world of dog showing in the UK. It also established the PAWSCARS as a premier event in the UK pedigree dog world calendar and what is even better is that the PAWSCARS will raise money for good causes and with the backing of some of the biggest businesses in the industry.
The PAWSCARS and The Peek A Boo Trust were the brainchild of Gavin Robertson, handler of 2013 Crufts Best In Show Winner, Ch Soletrader Peek A Boo, or 'Jilly' and co-founder Stuart Baillie. The dog show community will be able to nominate those individuals, organisations and businesses they believe worthy of recognition; The PAWSCARS Committee will then take forwards a shortlist for a public vote. The lucky winners will receive their award on the night. The majority of awards will be voted on by the public with the Awards presented on the night. The PAWSCARS committee will also aim to recognise those often unsung heroes who will be invited to join The PAWSCARS Hall Of Fame and The Peek A Boo Trust's award for Outstanding Achievement. In addition to the awards, The PAWSCARS will also recognise the winners of the Top Dog, Top Stud and Top Brood Bitch competitions annually.
