We are thrilled that our Dog Show will be returning to the Church Knowle Centre on Sunday 1st August. Gates will open at 11 am and dog show classes will begin from approximately 11:30 am. This year, there will be three rings of dog classes: a Male ring, a Female ring and our ever-popular Dog Olympics. Rosettes will be awarded from 1st to 6th place and prizes will be available for the lucky winners.
Does your dog have dashing looks? Does their tail go bonkers when they are happy?! There will be a wide range of classes for you to enter on the day, including: Waggiest Tail, Child Handler, Best Rescue, Most Appealing Eyes and Golden Oldie.
The fun doesn’t stop there!
There will also be the opportunity for your four-legged friends to take part in the Have-a-go Agility, which is an activity for all abilities and a great favourite to get involved in.
If you think your dog can jump over hurdles in the fastest time, don’t miss out on giving our Haybale Hurdles a go. Super prizes to be won!
There’s even more to do…
Other attractions include seeing Liberty’s Birds of Prey, getting involved in bushcraft activities with Wessex Wilderness Skills, meeting some exotic animals with WorldLife, viewing incredible vintage cars from Dorset Car Club and experiencing a Police Dog search demonstration from PD Jeff, PD Rodney and TPD Loxley.
This event is as much a day out for our dogs as it is for you, so we have made sure that our four-legged friends will be well looked after throughout the day. Water bowls will be placed across the event site and we have a cool-down zone prepared, including paddling pools, wet towels and more.
Prizes to be won!
We are delighted to have many local stallholders joining us and a selection of refreshments to keep you energised and hydrated during the event. There will also be two live performances from Allsort’d and the opportunity to enter our classic tombola, with many prizes up for grabs!
Tickets for our Summer Raffle, Grand Draw and Hampers will be available to purchase throughout the event. Don’t forget to pop by and place your entries, to be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes. The tickets will be drawn on the day, so make sure you stay to find out if you are one of the lucky winners!
All money raised from the event will go towards helping the rescue animals in our care and it will be a wonderful opportunity to support a local charity and get involved in the community.
