The Kennel Club’s very own Companion Dog Club, for all types of dog, will be inviting its members to join in the fun with competitions designed to entertain dogs and owners alike.

With commentary by Peter Purves and contests including the Waggiest Tail, there are bound to be fun canine capers galore to thrill the crowds.
