Fun Dog Show

As always, the cornerstone of Paws with Pride is our fabulous fun dog show. Once again, we have some fantastic custom made rosettes to be won for the best dogs in the following classes:
• Prettiest Bitch
• Most Handsome Dog
• Most Appealing Eyes
• Best Veteran
• Best Condition
• Feeliest Fur
• Most Camp / Butch Dog (Fancy Dress)
• Waggiest Tail
• Best Biscuit Catcher
• Cheekiest Expression
• Best Rescue Dog
• Dog the Judge would Most Like to Take Home

And, as we’re a Kennel Club Registered Companion Dog Show we’ll have a special ‘Best Condition’ category just for Kennel Club members. Entering your dog in the dog show costs £1 per dog per class…. Judging starts at 12.30

Gay Walkies

We like to do our bit to raise funds for hard pressed local animal charities and last year introduced a new feature – gay walkies, our very own camp and colourful Pride parade for dogs. It was such a success that we’re having another ‘gay walkies’ this year and hope to make even more money for local animal charities (to be announced on the day). Taking part costs £2 per dog and all the money raised will go to the charities. All we ask is that you deck out your dogs with something camp and colourful.

Stalls and Refreshments

There’ll be no shortage of food and drink – and you’ll be able to pick up some doggie items, charity information and even buy a raffle ticket or two to help the hard pushed charities in these difficult times.
