If you’re looking for an opportunity to showcase your dog to the town, lead your rover to Oliver’s Mount on Sunday, August 25.

Yorkshire Coast Dog Rescue is geared up for its second fun dog show of the summer featuring classes, stalls, crafts, photography, home baking and more.

The event runs from 2-4.30pm and admission is free.

There are classes for all pups and dogs ranging from best condition dog and bitch to golden oldie, most sociable puppy, best child handler, lovable rogue, happiest rescue dog, judge’s choice, best trick and best in show. Class entry is 50p.

Chairperson Sue Dixon, who is one of the organisers of the event, said: “It’s a fun family afternoon for all the family with classes for any dogs to join in.”

She added that funds raised during the day will go directly to the charity which works across the region to help rescue and rehome abandoned or unwanted dogs.

There are still places for groups and individuals to run stalls on the day, for £5. Anyone interested should contact Sue on 07583 269614

Professional dog behaviourist Alpha Assist will also be on hand to answer relevant pet owner queries and to give advice.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own portable chairs as seating is limited.

Yorkshire Coast Dog Rescue is run entirely by unpaid volunteers and needs to raise £1,500 a month to cover vets and kennel fees.
