Battersea Dogs & Cats Home will be hosting a free family-friendly event for pet owners and their dogs at London Fields in Hackney on Saturday 15 September from 10am to 5pm.
Battersea’s canine behaviour, feline, and veterinary experts will all be on hand to offer advice and basic dog health checks.
The fun-filled day out will also include demonstrations from the Battersea rescue dog agility team, face painting, and a light-hearted dog show which will see dogs compete for five different prizes; Best Sausage Catcher, Waggiest Tail, Best Eyes, The dog the judge would like to take home, and Best in Show.
Rebecca Calver, Battersea’s Community Engagement Team Leader said, “We’re really looking forward to meeting dogs from all over London at Dogs’ Day Out, our free event in Hackney. Everyone is welcome, whether they have questions for our team of dog trainers or cat experts, want to compete in the friendly dog show, have a go at agility, or are simply looking for a fun day out for all the family.”
The dog classes cost £2 to enter and competitors can sign up on the day. Find out more about Dogs’ Day Out on the Battersea website.
