The dog show is lots of fun and open to everyone, but please remember for the health, wellbeing and safety of all our visitors, both two legged and four, please ensure you keep your dogs on their leads at all times – we don’t want any dogs joining in the Gymnastics display (or owners for that matter)! We kindly request that you do not attend with bitches or puppies under 6 months old – bring them next year when they can compete instead! Remember to bring water bowls for your dogs because we all need refreshment and we’ve provided bins around the fayre so please clean up after them too – thank you.
