The Rangers at Linlithgow Peel, in association with Linlithgow Burgh Beautiful, are encouraging locals to get involved in the Burgh Beautiful Dog Show. Taking place on Saturday 3 May this fun-packed day will feature fun and games for all dog lovers.
At the Dog Show there will rides and stalls for big kids and small. There will be the opportunity for visitors to enrol their dogs in obedience training where experts will demonstrate the skills required to keep a dog well-behaved at all times. There will also be the chance to enter pets into prize-winning classes including ‘Waggiest Tail’, ‘Best Junior Handler’, ‘Cutest Puppy’ and ‘Sit and Stay’.
Ian Lewis, Linlithgow Peel Ranger, said;
“The Burgh Beautiful Dog Show promises to be a great day out for all dog-loving families, with fun and games for all ages. There are some really fun prize-categories that puppies and older dogs can join in, so everyone can get involved. It’s a nice reminder too that Linlithgow Peel is a fantastic space for walks, with nature and history all rolled into one.”
There are competition classes on throughout the afternoon from 13.30 to 15.15 with entry at only £1 per dog, per entry. Winners will receive a special rosette and a goody bag to say congratulations. Entries for the classes can be submitted from 12.30.
