Stratford dog show to make a paw-sitive impact

Stratford Editorial 12th Apr, 2024   0

A CARE home in Stratford is raising the woof with a community dog show.

Ambleside, on Evesham Road, is opening its doors on Saturday (April 13) from 2pm until 4pm for its Amblewoof Canine Competition.

Local people and their four-legged friends are invited to come along and compete to be crowned poochie with the ‘Waggiest Tail’, ‘Most Obedient’, ‘Best Agility’, ‘Best Puppy’ and ‘Best Senior Citizen’.

There will be a paw-some panel of dog loving residents ready to judge – and fuss – the pooches that visit on the day, with prizes for those named as the top dogs, including rosettes made by the residents and dog treats and toys.

On the day, there will also be a tombola, plenty of drinks and nibbles, and an ice-cream van – complete with dog friendly options. Offering helpful advice, they’ll be stalls, including a local dog trainer, pet food supplier, dog boarder, and the Guide Dogs for the Blind Dog Trust.

To enter a pooch into the Amblewoof Canine Competition will cost £1, with all funds raised donated to Dogs Trust Kenilworth and Guide Dogs Leamington.

Home manager  Charlotte Levin,said: “We’re officially gearing up for our Amblewoof Canine Competition and are paws-itive our local furry friends will not disappoint.

“Here at Ambleside, we’re always looking for new and exciting events to bring residents and the community together – and with many puppy-loving residents in the home, hosting our own canine competition seemed like a no-brainer.

“We are very much looking forward to meeting lots of new faces – of the two and four-legged kind.”
