Tenth Annual Fairhaven Garden Fun Dog Day
Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden at South Walsham, is staging its tenth annual Fun Dog Day on Sunday, September 8, from 10.30am to 3pm.
The event is a fun day for all dog lovers and a great opportunity for local residents to demonstrate pride in their dogs.
There is a dog show with 11 categories, including best mover, best biscuit catcher, cutest face, best crossbreed, prettiest bitch, handsomest male and best family (two or more dogs). It costs £1.50 to enter each category; proceeds go to CARE Dog Rescue, www.care-uk.com . There is no need to enter in advance, just bring your dog along on the day and join in the fun.
Other activities include the K9 Capers display team and ‘have a go’ agility and flyball, along with doggy stalls.
