Eager dogs jumping for joy (and treats)
Assault course the highlight of Trust open day
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.
