Freebridge Community Housing are welcoming dogs and their owners to join their first Community Dog Show, at Hillington Square!
The Dog Show, taking place this Friday 28 August between 12-3pm, is free to enter and supported by Mill House Vets. The event is open to everyone and dogs do not need to be registered beforehand to take part. There are eight categories and first, second and third place in each class will receive a prize:
- Cutest Puppy
- Best Crossbreed
- Waggiest Tail
- Best Six Legs (Dog and handler together)
- Most Appealing Eyes
- Best Child Handler
- Best Older Dog (Over seven years)
- Best In Show
Alongside the show itself, there will be agility displays, dog training advice and pet products available to buy. The event has been organised to encourage continued responsible pet ownership while understanding how best to enjoy time with your dog. A range of pet services, many of which are free, are on offer in the local area and this is the perfect opportunity to find out more.
Robert Clarke, Director of Housing at Freebridge said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming people and their dogs to Hillington Square to join in with the show. The afternoon promises to be great fun, and by having organisations involved like Mill House Vets, there will be really helpful information and guidance available to all. We have made sure that there are categories to suit every type of dog, so come along to the heart of the community and enjoy the afternoon!”
Sam Richardson, Senior Nurse at Mill House Vets went on to say: “I am looking forward to meeting everyone on the day – as well as having fun, I will be bringing lots of useful information with me about the amazing charity PDSA and the help we can offer together to families on limited incomes. I also run puppy training classes at Mill House so will be happy to chat all things puppy!”
