Spring Dog Show rundown

This year we hosted our Spring Dog Show on Easter Tuesday, 3rd April. We had a fantastic turnout and got to see all different shapes, sizes and temperaments. Even the bad weather didn’t stop us, as we moved from our normal outdoor area to our indoor arena. Nothing worse than a load of soggy pups 🙁 We’d like to thank everyone who turned up and put their dogs to the test. We have detailed the winners of each category below:
