French Bulldogs in the Thousand Islands
Dexter at the Eastern Canada French Club Booster in Orangeville
Can you think of a better way to spend a summer weekend than surrounded by hundreds of French Bulldogs? Of course you can’t, which is why you should be making plans to attend the Eastern Canada French Bulldog Club Specialty Booster in Brockville, Ontario. Brockville is convenient to the Western New York State border crossing, and is located in one of Canada’s most scenic tourist areas, the beautiful Thousand Islands Region of Ontario.
The ECFBC Booster takes place on Sunday, August 19th, and our judge is R. Denis. We will be awarding prizes for:
Best of Breed
Best of Opposite
Best of Winners
Highest Scoring French Bulldog in Obedience and Rally
And a prize for all class winners
Please consider donating a trophy!
This isn’t just about a single show, either – on one weekend, in a single location, you’ll be able to take part in:
The ECFBC French Bulldog Regional Booster
The French Bulldog National Specialty – Saturday, August 18th, judge Everett Mincey
Group Six Specialty
French Bulldog Booster
Three all breed conformation shows
Three all breed rally and three all breed obedience trials
These shows are held in Conjunction with the Thousand Islands Kennel and Obedience Club.
If you’ve never before entered a dog show in Canada, read this Guide to Canadian Dog Shows for Americans.
If you’re not a dog show person, there are still some great reasons to come out and attend the show.
You’ll get to see some of the best French Bulldogs in Canada, all in one ring, and you’ll get to speak to some of Canada’s best and most knowledgeable French Bulldog breeders. There will be French Bulldog themed shopping, including a booth to benefit Eastern Canada French Bulldog Rescue and Last Chance French Bulldog Rescue. There will be raffles and benefits, parties and fun, and all among a group of people who won’t find it odd at all that you’ve come all the way to Brockville just to hang around a bunch of Frenchie people.

Is this an event for bulldogs only? Or is there a separate competition for other breeds?
There is a separate specialty for French Bulldogs only on Saturday, but regular classes for all breeds on all three days.
What a handsome boy!
Wow! I soooo wish I could be there – that sounds like an incredible weekend!
Looks like a winner!
