    Hector’s Greyhound Rescues Annual Fun Dog Show is a very popular event which gets bigger and better every year. 2020 is no exception with an exciting new venue which is large enough to also incorporate a fun day out for all the family.

    Hector’s Fun Dog Show is a chance for everyone to show off their gorgeous dogs. There are two rings, one for Sighthound’s and one for mixed breeds, with fun classes and games to enter including Hector’s fun and very popular game of Musical Hoops. There are rosettes and prizes for 1st - 3rd place and trophies for best in show in both rings. Judging commences 12 noon £2 per entry payable in the ring.

    Relax and enjoy the entertainment in the ring from the grandstand or sit with your own picnic, unless you can be tempted by the wonderful options of food available including many tasty Vegan options. There will be many stalls to browse with crafts, gifts and dog merchandise, plus plenty for the younger members of the family to enjoy with a bouncy castle, trampolines, rides and face painting.

    Join Hector’s for a fun afternoon with or without a canine friend to accompany you. Hector’s Best Rescue class is a chance to see all the wonderful Hector’s rehomed dogs looking happy and healthy with their wonderful owners. All proceeds will go towards Hector’s Greyhound Rescue to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome more homeless Greyhounds.
