The Bea­cons­field Coun­try Fayre, which is tak­ing place on Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day, Au­gust 31, will fea­ture a con­test de­signed to show­case the best dogs in the town.

Buoyed by the re­cent suc­cess of a ca­nine act win­ning this year’s Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent TV show, or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing this year’s dog show will at­tract more than ever.

The con­test will fea­ture var­i­ous dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories, from pedi­gree classes, to a prize for the dog with the wag­gi­est tail.

There will also be a new se­niors class for older dogs to en­ter.

Last

year’s

event

was marred by rain­fall but still proved pop­u­lar with en­trants, but this year or­gan­is­ers want even more to come for­ward.

Sylvia Jones, co-chair of the Bea­cons­field Coun­try Fayre, said: “It was great to see so many dogs be­ing en­tered last year de­spite the ap­palling weather and this year there are ten classes to choose from.

“There is the ever pop­u­lar class for the pet that looks like its owner, which has own­ers dress­ing Ac­tion from last year’s show up as dogs to im­prove their chances of win­ning, but new this year is the se­niors class.”

Judges have al­ready been lined up to of­fer their views, with Tr­ish Barr, an of­fi­cial Ken­nel Club judge, and Jana Ne­meova, a dog trainer and be­haviourist, set to go along on the day.

The Bea­cons­field Coun­try Fayre will take place in Wind­sor End from 11am un­til 4pm. Any­one wish­ing to en­ter their pets into the dog show should go to www.bea­cons­field coun­try­fayre.org where an ap­pli­ca­tion form for the show can be down­loaded.
