If you’re proud of your pooch then head to Huntingdon next month where the annual Riverside Gala will once again be hosting the Wood Green Fun Dog Show.
As well as a variety of entertainment, funfair, stalls, live music, displays and a flypast by Second World War planes, the day will give dogs – and their owners – a chance to take centre stage and win one of the six fun categories.
So if you’re pet is quick on the draw when it comes to retrieving a sausage, can sit and stay with the best or can perform a trick, then get them along to the gala.
There are also competitions for the waggiest tail, prettiest six legs (obviously including the owner’s) and, a skill all dogs seem to have mastered, biscuit catching.
The dog show starts at 1pm with the sausage retrieving; best sit and stay at 1.30pm; waggiest tail at 2pm; biscuit catching 2.30pm; prettiest six legs 3.30pm; and judge’s favourite trick at 4pm.
The show will take a break at 3.30pm while the flypast takes to the sky over Huntingdon.
There will also be a school for dogs run by Wood Green.
