Tomorrow is a busy day for us: we’re at Bradlaugh Fields with the Scruffs free fun dog show all afternoon- so the weekly Jolly Jaunts Walk with the trainers will be postponed until the following week. So looking forward to the dog show, it’s at 2:30 – there’ s loads of categories … if you can’t pick a competition category then pick our brains in the Q&A. I’m also really looking forward to doing the demonstrations and setting the challenges- wonder if anyone will be able to teach their dogs the trick in 5 minutes! This is a competition for all sorts-  how about the loveliest looking dog- including pedigree, rescue and cross-breed. If you like dressing up there’s fancy dress If your dog is smart then try our obedience section and best trick competition. Is your dog the most sociable? Enter our friendliest dog or the dog with the waggiest tail. Are you up for a laugh? What about entering our best 6 legs competition or sausage eating contest. There are no age limits to most categories-  apart from the competitions labelled  just for children- best dog and child handlers and the best decorated lead craft project.   I’ve the camera ready .. so excited it’s going to be a great afternoon! I take great delight in being able to say don’t forget hats and sunscreen and the water for your dog 🙂

Update: thank you to everyone who came … we had a such great afternoon.

Congratulations to the participants and winners!

The Bradlaugh Fields and Barn association took some photos- check out their website to see them soon 🙂
