HARE­FIELD Dogs Trust held its an­nual open day last week and raised more than £32,000 for the dogs in care.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple at­tended the event with their pooches in tow to check out the many stalls the vol­un­teers at the Trust had put on for the day, which in­cluded sev­eral food stalls, as well as stalls sell­ing treats for dogs.

Dogs and their own­ers could also take on the dog­gie as­sault course that in­cluded a high wall for dogs to run up and over, a tun­nel the dogs had to nav­i­gate their way through and a fence which had to be jumped in true showjump­ing style.

As well as the as­sault course, own­ers put their dogs on show in the main event of the day, where their four-legged friends were judged on a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories with each win­ner re­ceiv­ing a rib­bon.
