The Hunstanton Fun Dog Show – Saturday 12th May 2018

Last year I was featured as the face of ‘Crufts’ in the Daily Telegraph, along with the headline ‘Britain’s top dogs return for the 125th year’.  Whilst this was all rather flattering I couldn’t help but think it was somewhat ironic as I wouldn’t even pick up last place at Crufts!  Why you may ask?  Well, my age would be one factor and plus the fact that I am not entire (show speak for castration) and it’s been years since I’ve had a full set of my own teeth.

But all dogs have a chance of getting a rosette at the Hunstanton Fun Dog Show.  We don’t care if you are not entire; in fact we wouldn’t be so undignified as to check!  It doesn’t matter if you have a wonky eye or even two, a limp or are missing a few teeth.  If you turn up at the show after having a good old run about and are covered in mud, sand or soaking wet…great!   No need for any baths or toothpaste.  We welcome all dogs, pedigree and otherwise.  If you’re not sure about your parentage no need to be embarrassed, we won’t ask!

So come along and join us to have fun and enjoy the best day out for dogs on the Norfolk coast. There are 12 fun classes to enter with rosettes up to 10th place in each class – with Best in Show and Reserve BIS Trophies.

Followed by Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show.

Besides the Fun Dog Show there will be have-a-go flyball, a fastest recall competition, Dachshund Racing and a fantastic doggy dancing display by Paws Obedience. Plus trade stands, bouncy castles, plenty of refreshments and onsite parking.

    Hi, just wondering roughly how big the show area will be for the actual classes, in comparison to how many dogs there may be? My dog can be a bit nervous around other dogs and just wanted to enquire beforehand. If it is quite small, is it easy enough to get out if need be (from the sides perhaps?)
    Thanks, sorry for the odd question.

    1. We have a very large show ring as we do tend to get a lot of dogs attending and we try to give them as much room as possible. The ring is roped off and is easy enough to step over if need be. Booking in for classes can get a bit congested. May I suggest if your dog is nervous that he/she wears a yellow ribbon on their lead, this will make people aware and they should give you more room.
      Thanks for getting in touch. Do let me know if we can be of further help. Woofs Frodo

    I’ve only just found out about this and it’s too short notice for Aisha and me to attend, but do you hold this every year? If so I will put it in Aisha’s diary and plan ahead!

    1. Hi Aisha and mum, yes it’s every year second week in May

  4. Beth says:

    See you there guys, can’t wait as we had such a good time last year. We met some lovely friends who we are still in touch with and Oakley’s excited to meet everyone for the first time!

    Hi, please could I have a stand at this years dog show? I make and sell Barky Bakes at farmers markets at Fakenham, Creake Abbey & Sandringham, all treats are free from eggs, dairy, lactose or animal products. I also make dog jackass, jumpers etc! Thank you, Ann
