One of welovebearwood’s favourite films this year has to be The Artist. With all the style and fashion of the roaring 1920s we just love it.
Of course one of the stars of the film has to be Uggie the dog, which is why welovebearwood are particularly excited about Warley Woods' 'All About Dogs' event on Sunday 9th September.
This year’s Doggy Demonstrations section would definitely be something Uggie would want to enter and who knows, maybe Bearwood's home to our very own Uggie eh?
There will be a fun dog show with a range of categories suitable for any size and breed of dogs – including the waggiest tail and best rescue.
Many of the judges come from organisations that support Warley Woods or the RSPCA, including several this year from Fastsigns who are sponsoring the event for the first time.
There will be doggy demonstrations, including agility and flyball and the chance for people to try these activities themselves with their own pets. There will also be a dog “scurry” where dogs compete for the fastest time along a course.
Lots of other charities which have dogs at their heart will be represented and there will be doggy merchandise on sale as well as food and drink and craft stalls.
Companion Care Vets and a dog behaviouralist will be at the event to help give advice.
Viv Cole, Warley Woods Trust Manager said “We have so many dogs and their owners visit Warley Woods every day and so it is great to have an event especially for them.”
Helen Tuite, who is Community Fundraiser for the RSPCA, also told us "We are so grateful for Warley Woods Community Trust for allowing us, once again, to hold a dog show there this year. The money raised will go towards our Leaps & Bounds Appeal to build our new animal centre in Frankley, which should be open to the public in November."
The event starts at 11am and finishes at 4pm with dog show classes running throughout the day. Registration for the Dog Show starts at 10am.
The Trust and RSPCA are very grateful to Fastsigns for their sponsorship of this event.
