Come and join The Donkey Sanctuary’s Fun Dog Show this weekend!
Does your dog have a trick up its sleeve? Or is it simply the Prettiest Pooch or the Handsomeist Hound? Now’s your chance to prove it at The Donkey Sanctuary’s Fun Dog Show on Sunday 22nd June from 11.30am-3pm.
With a packed schedule of 15 classes the show, at the charity’s Sidmouth headquarters, has something for every canine with fantastic prizes including dog treats and toys to be won.
There will be a fly ball event with speedy dogs hurtling over hurdles against the clock, and a chance for your own pooch to have a go and to try out the ‘have a go agility’ course. There will also be the opportunity to take away portraits and prints from pet photographers and paw print artists!
Organiser Hollie Neil says: “This is going to be a really fun day! With so many classes and with the agility course every dog can have a go at something and is in with a good chance of winning a fantastic prize. So it’s well worth coming along and having a go- you never know- your pooch may surprise you!”
Besides the dog show there will be plenty of entertainment, including face painting, a bouncy castle and a delicious barbecue. The Donkey Sanctuary itself is a great place to explore with rescued donkeys to meet, donkeys to adopt, beautiful walks, a family maze, fantastic food and drink and much more.
Come along and join the fun. Entries are on the day. Each dog show class is just £1.50. ‘Have a go agility’ and fly ball are £1. Proceeds go towards The Donkey Sanctuary’s work in the UK and abroad.
