Primped and preened pooches are strutting their stuff at this year's Eukanuba National Dog Show.

About 1500 canines are involved in the show, being held at the New Zealand Kennel Club in Porirua until Saturday.

Categories including puppies, gun dogs and working dogs are being judged on their appearance, obedience and agility during the event by judged hailing from Denmark, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

Finalists from regional heats around the country will vie for the chance to represent New Zealand at Cruft's Dog Show in England in March next year,

The show will culminate in the awarding of best of breed and best in show titles on Saturday afternoon.
