Following on from the success and popularity of Peasedown St John’s first ever official dog show last year at Party in the Park, organisers have announced it will return again for a second time.
Local animal rescue charity, Funding Animal Futures will be coordinating and facilitating an afternoon of activities for dogs at the Peasedown festival on Saturday 8th June.
Charity Director, Sally Campbell said: “We’re excited to be returning to Peasedown St John last year. We had a lot of entries and enthusiastic dog owners at last year’s Dog Show.
“Party in the Park is a fantastic event with almost 3,000 people attending. Many people like to bring their dogs for a day out, so what better way to have fun at the village’s biggest event than enter your dog into a competitive show where they can win prizes?! You can meet other like-minded dog owners too!”
Classes will start at 1.30pm, with The Best in Show competition following soon after in front of the main stage. Local residents can enter on the day, with the competition being judged by professional dog trainer and handler, Kim Harrell.
Eight classes will run without a break. This year’s Dog Show sponsors are Woodborough Kennels.
Festival Bookings Manager, Karen Walker, added: “Thanks to Sally, Katie and Laura for bringing Funding Animal Futures back to Peasedown St John this year for a second, highly anticipated, village Dog Show.
“People told us last year that they loved it, so we’re pleased to be working in partnership again with this important local charity.”
Funding Animal Futures secures the future of abandoned and unwanted animals through independent fundraising events throughout the year and making donations to rescue organisations.
