There are ten classes for the Dog Show including the most handsome dog, waggiest tail and the most appealing eyes to name a few!

Julie Dawes, Events and Recreation Co-ordinator at The Parks Trust said: “We are so pleased we are able to continue the Big Doggie Do with the support from the local community. Each year it grows and grows with around 1500 people attending.

“This year highlights include a display from HULA of dogs that need a home and Dog Agility performances. So put 28th May in your diary and join us for a great day out for all the family.”

General admission is free, entry to each class in the Dog Show costs £1 per entry, the profit generated from the show will be donated to a chosen charity on the day.

Julie added: “It’s great that the money raised from the profits of the Dog Show goes to a local charity.  Last year, Dogs for the Disabled were the lucky recipients.”

The event will include, dog charity displays, refreshments and stalls, kids activities, the fun dog show and dog agility shows and exhibitors selling everything you might need for your four-legged friend.
