Assistance dog charity Canine Partners are inviting families and their pet dogs to their Southern Training Centre this summer to join in the fun at their annual dog show.
Canine Partners is a national charity that trains amazing assistance dogs to transform the lives of people with disabilities, boosting their confidence and independence. The dogs are taught a range of everyday tasks including picking up and fetching items, opening doors and helping to undress a person. They can even help to load and unload a washing machine and they can fetch help in an emergency.
Locals are expected to attend the Family Fun Pet Dog Show near Midhurst, West Sussex, on Saturday 20 July with their pet dogs to raise vital funds for the local-based assistance dog charity.
“Our Family Fun Pet Dog Show is the perfect opportunity to gather friends and family for a great day out whilst supporting a local charity,” says Gemma Tupper, Community Fundraiser for the South and Wales. “It’s not all about the dogs as there is plenty of fun activities and games to keep the kids entertained plus some delicious food and refreshments.”
The dog show includes categories such as ‘Most handsome chap’, ‘Loveliest lady’ and ‘Best rescue’. There will also be demonstrations of what Canine Partners’ amazing dogs can do, delicious food and refreshments, and a chance to win fantastic prizes in the tombola.
The event will take place between 11am – 4pm on Saturday 20 July.
Tickets can be purchased on the gate for £2 per adult and 50p per child. Dogs enter the event for free.
Entries into the dog show are £2 per dog per category. For more information please visit caninepartners.org.uk/events/, call Laura McCreadie on 01730 716012 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
