There are rosettes and prizes to be won, including the best in show winner receiving a tree planted in the park in honour of their dog! Super fun to take part or just to watch, we’re hoping to see lots of enthusiastic pet parents and hopeful little ones handling their best friend in the show ring!

As well as watching an abundance of beautiful dogs strut their stuff in the show ring, there will be displays to entertain young and old.
- Obedience at 1pm, enjoy watching super well-behaved mutts show off their fancy footwork

- Tricks at 3pm, be entertained by super fun tricks and have the chance to learn some on the day!
Also on the day there will be a selection of stall holders including: local vets, groomers, charities, games, dog treats and a pet photography opportunity where an award winning photographer will catch your pooch’s best side, as well as food and refreshment trucks if you get peckish.
To ensure everyone has fun it is asked that all dogs remain on-lead at all times, dogs entering classes must be over 6 months old, the judge’s decision is final and please remember this is just a show for fun with no competition points.
There will be free poo bags on the day so make sure to pick up after you dog. The event is free to enter with a free craft activity available, but don’t forget some cash for entering the dog show classes, browsing the stalls and getting a cuppa!
We look forward to seeing you and your lovely dog on the day and don’t forget to vote for the old sweet chestnut tree!
