Merseyside Dogs Home:-
'Bark In The Park'
THE Merseyside Dog's Home put on a
fantastic event in Victoria Park, on 24 September 2017. The event started at
10am and went ended at 5pm; it was sponsored by Natural Instinct. The
'paw-fect day out' had many attractions for 2 and 4 legged friends.
Those attending had the chance to see a wide range of dogs, from small to large,
working and domestic.
The event was run by both staff and volunteers
from the Homes, who also offered visitors advice on the day. Activities included
a free 'Have A Go activity' that enabled visitors to take their
dogs on a simple course and see how they got on. There was an 'Retrieve
The Sausage' task, which gave people the chance to see if they could
train their dog to bring back the delicious sausage, without eating it! We have
not been told how many succeeded...
A 'Temptation ally' was where
dogs had to show everyone where their priorities lie... Love of treats or your
love... Then there was 'Hay Racing' in which dogs had 5 hurdles to
negotiate... But it was not all Dog Fun, as highly trained wagg-professors took
to the park to find out just how happy your dog was, with the aim in finding the
happiest dog that day... Then there was Agility, an obstacle course for dogs,
provided and sponsored by Mike of Urban K9.
Other activities included many more
competitions, ending with the 'Best of the Show' which we got to
meet and photograph. The Top Dog Arena offered lots of interesting expert
speakers. Among all of the 8 different groups was the Husky
and Dog A.I.D. A.I.D.
(Assistance In Disability) who offered advice and information to the public who
had attended the event.
