Rover shred the carpet or turn walks into a one-sided tug of
war? If your dog has a behavioural problem or you are worried
about its health, you will be able to ask advice from the most
experienced people in the business at the Surrey County Show
on May 26.
If your best friend is just full of high spirits, however, you might prefer to enter it for Games for a Bark.
For the first time, Battersea Dogs Home, the oldest dogs and cats home in the country, is bringing a display to the show at Stoke Park, Guildford.
Two of its dogs will be coming too, one that has been already successfully homed with a member of the Battersea staff and one that will be searching the crowds for a nice new owner.
The display will provide all the information you need on how to set about acquiring a rescue dog and staff will be on hand to give advice to dog owners experiencing problems with their pets. They have a wealth of expertise in how to deal with behavioural problems as well as veterinary knowledge.
They are also hosting Canine Capers, a fun addition to the popular traditional exemption dog show, so dont miss the Battersea Games for a Bark. And there will be lots of Battersea souvenirs and dog and cat toys for sale too.
The Surrey County Show is the biggest one day agricultural show in the country and it is a major show case for the farming community right in the heart of the county town.
