We’re not the only ones who need a good day out after the last few months – our dogs need some fun too - so why not take them along to the canine extravaganza that is Dogs Day Out?

Join staff and volunteers from the charity Medical Detection Dogs on Sunday, September 5, in Swanbourne for a great day out with plenty for visitors with four and two legs.

For the canine visitors, there are gun dog scurry events to compete in, a companion dog show with prizes and a variety of have-a-go events such as an agility course.
