Dogs for Good Fun Day 30 July

The Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh Park will provide the venue for the annual Dogs for Good charity fun day on Saturday 30 July.

Get ready for a great day out for the whole family, including an opportunity to learn more about this inspirational charity and meet some of the assistance dogs, puppies, volunteers and staff. You'll have the chance to meet people with an assistance dog and hear about how the charity has helped to transform their lives.

Attractions include a fun dog show, agility and flyball, heelwork to music with Mary Ray, Dogs for Good's own incredible demonstration team, hands-on animal encounters with Wild Creature Features, Fire and Rescue Service search dog and handler, falconry, magician, face painting, circus skills workshops, West Midlands Police Dog demonstration team, and lots of trade stands. Have-a-go activities include power chair football and Paralympic sports wheelchair basketball and boccia.

Representatives from the Kennel Club will also be on hand to answer questions about its Assured Breeder Scheme, which assists families in locating a responsibly-bred puppy, as well as questions on the Good Citizen Dog Scheme, the largest dog training programme in the UK.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, say, "The Kennel Club is delighted that Dogs for Good is holding its annual fun day at the Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh, which is an ideal venue for an event such as this. This is the sixth year the fun day has been held with us and we know how much dog lovers enjoy this day out. There is plenty of space to enjoy a picnic, so everyone will have a great time."

Event takes place from 11am to 3pm. Entry is free, with a suggested donation of £3 for parking. For more information go to the Dogs for Good website.
