Get ready for wacky races, best breeds, fun classes and stalls aplenty at the 2013 Swanzdale Summer Dog Show and Fun Day.

Organisers at the veterinary practice in Scalby Road are gearing up for their third annual extravaganza taking place on Sunday July 28 on the front field at Yorkshire Coast College, from 11am-4pm.

This year’s event is being held in aid of The Dogs’ Trust and will feature family activities, typical and fun dog show classes, police dogs, terrier racing, ferret roulette, fun obstacle course, various charity stalls, cakes, tombola and more.

Swanzdale Vets practice manager Lisa Winter said: “It’s a day we go out into the community and meet our clients, all to raise money for local charities.

“Last year we raised £1,000 and we hope to raise even more this year for The Dogs’ Trust.

“It’s fun for kids and for everybody to come along and enter their dogs in the classes.”

Rosettes and food prizes will be awarded to the best any handler puppy, terrier and hound, working or pastoral, gun dog/toy and utility, veteran over eight years and crossbreed.

The judges will also be on the search for the waggiest tail, best biscuit catcher, the dog they would most like to take home and best junior handler,

The event is free to attend and classes cost £2 per entry with all donations going to charity.
