We had a fantastic weekend at the Dogs Unleashed Show held on the Bakewell show ground in Derbyshire. A fantastic doggy day out that is right on our doorstep!! If you haven’t been I highly recommend that you put it in your diary for next year, you won’t be disappointed!
We had the afternoon there on Saturday with Milo, he had a fantastic time :
Milo had a scare at a show last year, so we have been using our fantastic games to rebuild his confidence and he was a superstar all afternoon! 🌟
We utilised the show environment to do lots of training for him and I could tell he was having such a good time. It’s important with your dog that you constantly monitor their behaviour in these environments so you know they are always happy and avoid any negative associations or possible conflicts with other dogs.
The environment can be highly stressful for some dogs as obviously its packed with lots of doggies of all shapes and sizes but the beautiful Bakewell show ground has lots of open space to allow for any dogs that need a bit more room.
There were paddling pools to enable the dogs to keep cool, lots of water bowls were avaliable and helpful staff at hand with with watering cans to wash the dogs down if needed.
On Sunday it was Flash’s turn. He just takes everything in his stride, he’s such a super cool dog to own and a total character. 😎 We again utilised the day to do lots of training along with having fun. Here is what he got up to:
There were so many have a go activities to try; Swimming, Dock Diving, Gundog Scurries, Flyball, Agility, Hoopers it really is a action packed day for your four legged friends!
There was a wide variety of stalls selling everything from toys and coats to dog photography and natural treats! We took full advantage and used the opportunity to stock up on some fantastic products:
We were all sad when the weekend ended and we can’t wait till next year!
Take a look at the Dogs Unleashed website for more details and be sure to mark next year’s date in the calendar:
Play….. Train….. Enjoy….. Succeed!
