LUDLOW will again be going to the dogs.

The town’s Rotary are holding the fifth annual Dog Day in the beautiful grounds of Stokesay Court, situated approximately six miles north of Ludlow and just off the A49.

A very good day would take the amount raised from this doggy event over five years to £100,000.

Again, the emphasis of the day is on fun for all the family, including canine members of the household. Pets will be able to participate in more than 20 different classes from the Scruffiest Mutt, the Fastest Sausage Eater, to the Best Young Handler, up to the Best in Show.

Throughout the day various demonstrations will take place including past favourites; The Burne Bloodhounds, Koomeska Huskies and the Paws for Thought display team. Plus new additions; Westglen Heelwork to Music.

There are also a number of Have a go challenges, including Dog Agility, Gun Dog Scurry and new for this year, Fun Dog Racing. As well as all the doggy events there are stalls selling canine related goods, a wide range of food stalls, and for those with a thirst there is the popular tea tent, Pimms tent and the Hobsons Bar.

This event would not be possible without the support of Caroline Magnus for allowing the Rotarians to use the beautiful grounds of Stokesay Court as the venue for the event and the support of main sponsors; Teme Vets, Hatfields of Shrewsbury, Tuffins and Hobsons Brewery.As a result of the money raised over the last four years at the annual Ludlow Dog Day, Ludlow Rotary Club has been able to distribute over £70,000 to a range of charities and community organizations.

The Ludlow Roary Club Dog Day takes place on Sunday, July 22.
