Dog Fun Day

We are pleased to be holding our very popular dog fun day once again.

This will include our fun dog show.

Come along to have a go at some of the activities that we teach at our training centre including agility and canine hoopers. Watch the demonstrations in agility and canine hoopers.

£1 for each entry for the dog show and all have-a-go activities. The money raised will be split equally and donated to Help for Homeless Hounds Norwich (https://www.facebook.com/HFHHN/) and Paws 4 Thought, Norfolk. (https://www.facebook.com/paws4thoughtnorfolk/)

If anyone would like to donate any items for these charities on the day we will have collection bins for this purpose. Dog food, treats and toys will all be gratefully received and split equally between the two charities.
