Game Fairs & Breed Stands

Breed Stands

The Manchester Terrier is a Vulnerable British Native Breed. Although it’s history dates back to Tudor times many people have not heard about or seen our breed. Our goal is to change this. One way we can do that is by promoting the breed at events such as Country Fairs, Discover Dogs, Pet Shows, and other dog related events on breed stands.

For information on this years breed stands and who to contact if you would like to represent the breed on the stand please click Breed Stands in 2024 (below).

More About Breed Stands

Each year we organise a number of breed stands at different events, see 'Events'. They are a great social event for Manchester Terrier owners and a brilliant way to showcase our breed to a wider audience.

Have you considered joining the BMTC Breed Promotion Team at one of the Country Fairs around the country?  If your dog is sound in character and body, steady around other dogs in close proximity, can be trusted to be fussed and stroked by adults, children and people who may not be used to dogs, and you are able to be on your feet and talk for around 3 hours about life with a Manchester – not to mention a potted breed history (5 Centuries in 60 seconds) and a few interesting facts then please get in touch with one of the Organisers listed.  Please be aware that at some Fairs there may be gun shots fairly close to the Stand.  Whether you can give half a day or camp/caravan for the duration and do 2/3 days on the trot in return for free entry tickets/camping pitch, great craic and entertainment then please get in touch with the Organiser of the Breed Stand you are interested in to discuss further!
