Castle Canines

Castle Canines: 3 & 4 August

Castle Canines is all about the pooches. Whether you own your own dog or just love them, there is something for everyone.

You will be able to enjoy displays and entertainment from a variety of different breeds including Pets as Therapy Dogs, Guide Dogs*, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People**, Medical Detection Dogs, huskies from the Siberian Husky Welfare Association and the Southern Golden Retriever Display Team**. Newfoundland Dogs in Action will be doing a water display on the lake, showing how they rescue people. (*Only on Saturday & ** Only on Sunday.)

Parade your pooch as part of the Hever Castle dog show (£1 to enter) with rosettes for the most Dashing Dog, Beautiful Bitch, Super Senior, Perfect Pup or Best Dressed Dog. On Sunday, owners can enter the Ravishing Rescue and Wonderful Wag categories as well.

You can also enter your hound into have-a-go agility (£1 to enter), how clever is your dog (£1 to enter) and seek advice on caring for their canine. During this weekend dedicated to your four-legged friends, there will also be a variety of stalls to browse.
